Why does someone sings the blues?
Who do you feel will wear the ‘crown’ next?
From Blues Boy to B.B. King. From being without parents at 14 and left to earn a living by sharecropping an acre of cotton in Mississippi. The King taught himself guitar and didn’t stop learning and teaching until his death at 89. Thanks to B.B., the blues moved from the fringes of mainstream to a place of honor. Always the work horse, he did as many as 342 shows in one year! Besides dozen of distinguished awards and accolades, he released 75 hit R&B singles, won 15 Grammys and fathered 50 children by 50 different women. And that’s just scratching the surface of this humble, talented blues genius.
The guitar blues players of the future will all be measured against the talents of B.B. King. You’ll know the man much better after this hour long tribute – as Dalana shares his solo work, duets and a few fine artists who were influenced by the best.
As always Dalana’s show is sugar free, fat free, gluten free and never tested on animals.
