C&L's Late Nite Music Club With B.B. King

To make it to 89 is a damn fine accomplishment for a blues man, though, that's for sure. In those 89 years, it is said that B.B. played over 15,000 shows. Assuming he played one show a day, that'd be 41 years of straight gigging. It sounds a bit farfetched, but with a guy who played as much as B.B., I wouldn't have put it past him. Show More Summary
