  • BB King RIP

    Posted by Dan from Madison on May 15th, 2015 (All posts by )

    Most of the tributes you see and hear today about BB will feature crap like “The Thrill Is Gone” and that terrible song he did with Bono. This is the real deal and is what I cut my teeth on when I was discovering the Blues. You can thank me later. Godspeed.

      An interesting and talented man, in a field and generation of interesting characters. Memories of him in the blazing sun at Newport, sweating profusely and just burning it up with that crack band of his. He could really skin the cat when he got going. R.I.P.

      True that Will. Speaking of band, I love how the organ player is playing the bass line as well as his keyboard parts in this video.

      Outstanding Dan, this performance is so good it hurts.

      They don’t do it like this anymore, Grurray.
