How are my residents at the B&J forum doing?

As you guys probably know BB King is touring. Or is on the tail end of that said tour. I don't know, I don't pay attention. Anyways, I went to see him and it was good. I liked the guy who opened for him, really awesome. I liked the show, but BB talked a bit too much. I learned a lot, and I'll cut him some slack, he IS 82. It was good overall, BB has such a heavenly tone.

Anyone seen the King live? Thoughts? Experiences?

I saw him live once, I think it was almost a year ago. Etha James opened and I thought she was hilarious, Al Green went on next and I contemplated leaving because he sucked so much, I honestly couldn't stand him and he played such a long set. Fortunately B.B. came on eventualy, and he does talk alot but that's just part of the B.B. King experiance. I would have been disapointed if he didn't talk "too much"....

Dude - the talking is what BB and the old style bluesers are all about! They draw you in, tell you stories - they entertain. And they play some ****ing beautiful guitar!

Yeah, I enjoyed the talking as much as the music.

I saw him back in August. It was the best concert I've ever been to. And he's a funny guy.

the talking is as much a part of the show as the playing.

BB can tell amazing stories.

He's as much of a storyteller as he is a guitar player :)

I wanna go see him, badly!

I so wanna see him.
Lomax took a few recordings of Lying competitions which was a delta name for story telling, if you can get your hands on them some how, they are really good.

I am just waiting for him to get to perth before it's too late.

I'd love to see him, but apparently his tour in 2005 was his last ever in the UK. Which is a huge shame.

Lemme rephrase...
Talked a lot but it was good stuff. Good life lessons. Plus, he's hilarious!

Yeah it was great. I wasn't sure if I was at a concert or a comedy show.
