B. B. King cancelled the remainder of his 2014 tour yesterday due to exhaustion. I caught him last year and rarely have I felt so privileged to just share someone’s air. He seemed tired then, and at 89 years old he’s definitely earned it. Today I’m spinning some mid-80s B.B., along with Etta James, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Gladys Knight, Billy Ocean and Chaka Khan.
Get better, Blues Boy. There’s still rocking to do.
