    Thanks so much for this, Michael. Great way to start the new day. I just wish the drawings of him looked more like him. I’ve danced many many times through the years to B.B. King. most recently last summer in Booneville California. Most memorable, I think, was in NYC, a midnight show on Broadway with Miles Davis, in about 1987. I’ve danced all my life to many of the greats: he’s up there.   From: Vox Populi To: sharondoubiago@yahoo.com Sent: Monday, February 9, 2015 2:01 AM Subject: [New post] Video: B.B.

      Thanks, Sharon! I grew up in Houston, Texas where BB was a giant long before he became famous elsewhere. I too have danced to the sound of Lucille many times.
