B.B. King


I saw BB King last night. At 80 years old, he's still an amazing performer. I just wanted to share.

Eben.

The man is absolutely incredible. At his age, he should be on the front porch of his mansion sipping lemonade and smiling at sunsets. The fact that he's still on the road speaks to his passion and dedication. Her certainly doesn't need the money. I saew him in NYC years ago, and he blew the house down. His playing is deceptively simple, but many very guitar-talented friends of mine have tried to emulate his style and failed miserably. A lot harder than it looks!

I saw B.B. King in 1980 and it changed the way I looked at the blues. I was a dumb city boy with no time for anything but Rock and Roll.

I'm still a dumb city boy, but sometimes I listen to other music.

Like Menudo and The Spice Girls?

BB King is incredible! He puts many younger performers to shame.
J - That was harsh! I'm writhing in pain, after laughing soo hard.
Saw him last year in Montreal, ok but age sure takes its toll. Yous should have seen him in his prime. I ain't what I used to be either so I'm not rying to be harsh or cynical, merely nostalgic.
