I covered this show back in May before I started “See The Music”, but I thought you might enjoy seeing one of the Legends that will always be a part of the Blues History. BB King took the stage at The Fox Theater this past May and at age 87 he still put on a legendary performance in front of thousands. When BB plugs in the love of his life, his guitar “Lucille”, the two become one and the blues comes alive. Having the opportunity to photograph and see this performance was an honor for me! BB King has performed and done duets with so many musical stars and legends like Eric Clapton, Elton john, Sheryl Crow, Gloria Estefan, Glenn Frey, Mark Knopflier, Billy Gibbons, Bobby Bland, Daryl Hall, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Jimmie Vaughan, Herbert Sumlin to name a few and one my personal favorite’s U2 performing “When Love Comes to Town”. For years BB’s music as passed through my ears and into my soul, so when I think of the blues I think of the “King”.
