Seems a strange choice for DL 2009, does BB. Only 83...


I saw him perform in November. It seems like a valid choice to me. He's obese, diabetic and losing stamina. He still puts on a great show though, albeit from a comfortable seated position. About 50% spoken word and not much performance in the second half of a 80 minute show. Check out his last album and tell me the subject matter doesn't suggest he's ready to depart.

He seems to be still going strong. According to his website. He is scheduled for 10 concerts in the next 2 months.

I think the DL are going for a bluesman double, after Bo Diddley went skyward last year...

Listening to his show, it sure sounds like he intends to go out "on the road."

Are they connected to B.B. King in any way, shape or form, apart from their homonymous name?

No that'll be his fast food loving cousin, with slightly different name.

I don't think he will die this year.

BB King to play UK arena concerts

Blues legend BB King is to play four arena concerts in the UK - despite retiring from touring outside of the US in 2006.

He will tour with 75-year-old British blues veteran John Mayall, who will play in the first half of the shows followed by King in the second half.

The pair will perform in Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and London at the end of June.

King, 83, launched his professional career in 1947.

During the 1950s, he was averaging 275 concerts a year and, in 1956, he notched up 342 gigs.

The 14-times Grammy-winner is best-known for his hits Every Day I Have The Blues and The Thrill Is Gone, performed on his guitar, Lucille.

In December, he performed with the Foo Fighters and John Mayer at the first ever Grammy Nominations Concert, in Los Angeles.

Announcing his retirement from international touring in 2006, King said: "I think the clock is ticking, yes.

"In fact, I know it is.

"Frank Sinatra sang about the September of [his] years. I think I'm in the November of my years."

He has a thirteen date tour of the US in February which, I'm sure you'd admit, would be rather difficult to do if he was dead. In fact, barring accidents and heart problems, I think he'll see out a few more years yet.

B.B. King for 2005? ... I am not too sure, but then again it could be a possibility as he is approaching 80. I saw him perform earlier this year and he was full of energy. There is a blues club in the entertainment district in Memphis, Tennessee where he sometimes performs and I have included a picture of it below.

Posted Image


Club damaged by fire. But Riley's not too bothered; he was busy gigging in Indiana, just one of 14 dates from New York to Toronto in October for the 88-year-old. Then it's two weeks off before another 9 shows in the south and south west. Still, the lazy sod does sit down the whole time.

why, you little...
