    A most awesome human being! First saw him follow The Ike & Tina Turner Revue when he opened for The Rolling Stones at The Forum in 1969. The Turners absolutely smoked and King simply put an end to it all! The Stones should have gone home after that, we did - after suffering thru 15 minutes of Jagger’s cock-rooster, stage end-to-end prancing.

    It's a crying shame what the 'management' is/was doing with such a (still) living treasure.
    The man should not be doing anything but receiving awards, tribute concerts and being honored as a giant of culture, music and guitar.

    That would have been awesome to attend. I don't know about the Forum but the BB King's performance of 1969-11-9 at the Oakland Coliseum, CA, has been recorded:
