I took my 13-year-old son Jacob to see B.B. King at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, New Jersey, last week. Who knows how much longer B.B. will continue his endless tour. He’s 86 and may actually want to retire some day.
On June 7, B.B. King joined Peavey Electronics, The Recording Academy and the State of Mississippi in celebrating the musical legacy of the “Birthplace of America’s Music” at the annual Mississippi Grammy Legacy Celebration and Peavey Awards at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Miss.
