B.B. King

I've been trying to see all the classic blues and rock musicians who may not be touring in a while.  Bill and I went to the Ottawa Congress Centre and saw the great B.B. King.  He's getting pretty old, but he still has that tone and that mournful tremelo.  Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo opened for him, and had a totally different sound, which was cool.  He stayed on stage signing people's things for a great deal of time.  I didn't get any pictures.  I couldn't get a camera in, but someone managed to smuggle in an acoustic guitar for the man to sign(!)
