Did you know that today is BB King's 87th Birthday?
Just wanted to chronicle that. I adore this man - love his music! And he is still traveling the world performing concerts to huge audiences. Astounding to me. I've had the pleasure of seeing him in concert 4 times. And the joy of talking to him in person. Have his autograph. More importantly, a treasured memory.
I mentioned earlier in a question that I think we should celebrate people's lives while they're still living. That's the purpose of this. You may not care for his music, but I don't think you can deny the contributions he has made to the music industry. He's often known as "The King of the Blues." Was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.
My favorite song performed in 1970.
Happy Birthday, BB King - Long live this King!!
