He's coming to play up here too...I wish I could go.

D Street Corral. 1969. Two feet from his amp. Awesome.

Anybody interested in music history should check out the Blues music history library at the University of Mississippi. (If you happen to be in Oxford MS) BB King donated a lot of his personal collection to the library. Most of the stuff there is one of a kind. A hidden treasure.

I was lucky enough to interview both BB King and Bo Diddley...we went to breakfast at Denny's after a gig at the Belly Up in San Diego. BB couldn't get a word in edgewise because Bo was talking about when he was a sheriff in Florida. What an interesting morning!
