I’ve been trying to hold back on the eulogy posts recently, but B. B. King…. this man changed music so profoundly by moving the blues into the mainstream, and pretty much invented electric guitar playing. Hate so see him go, but what a beautiful legacy he leaves behind. He was bringing the music to the people for hundreds of concerts a year, even when he was well into his 80’s.
By the way, Calep Emphrey, the drummer in this clip, is a seriously overlooked musician. His groove, musicality and dynamics are out of this world.
