Just got back from seeing B.B. King perform at the Orpheum in Vancouver. Great show. He sure knows how to work a crowd. Glad I finally got to see him live. Now I can say that I've seen B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan live. If only there was a way to see Hendrix then my life would be complete. Awesome shows. :bow:

He has an amazing presence doesn't he! It's like hanging out with the world's coolest grandpa. He's real gentleman and someone who you feel is genuinely tickled pink that you came to his show.

Oh, and that hummingbird vibrato! :smile:

Until this thread...I thought B.B. King was dead :eek:

or is he that blind guy? no wait, that's whats his name...Ray Charles?

Ray Charles + BB King = Major Confusion


this is very disturbing.


For a while, I thought the guy on my rice packages was BB King...



SEE THE RESEMBLANCE!!!

Went and saw him last night at the Edmonton Jubilee... best 80 bucks I've ever spent (GuitaristZ... screw the pedal, you can get one of those any time... but it's probably sold out anyway). Was sad to hear one of his band members had passed away the day before. It was funny at the end when he said he's noticed himself being billed lately as "B.B. King's last tour" to which he replies to the crowd he's worried that y'all maybe know something he doesn't!

Great guy. You could feel the love...
'nuff said.
