Blues Maker, B.B. King

18 05 2010

Blues Boy King, and Riley B. King are both names of the blues great, B.B. King.  I think it is safe to say that no other blues musician in the world has experienced the recognition and genre cross over more than B.B. King. Everyone can recognize the sight and sounds of this blues great.  Born in Mississippi and making his way to Memphis to jump start a career, B.B. or Mr. King, the latter seems more appropriate, now has more than 30 albums.  At the age of 75 he continues to tour and share the joy of his sound with the world.  Make sure you catch him on tour this year.

Here are few of the stops, but you can catch all of the remaining dates on the B.B. King website.
