BB King

Saturday night we went to a BB King concert and sat in the front row. The pictures aren't the best because they were taken with my phone (we forgot the camera). BB King is 82 years old! Yup, 82, and still performing. I thought it was an awesome experience. He has an amazing blues voice and the way he plays the guitar was incredible. He had fun dancing in his chair and telling stories. It would have been awesome to see him when he was young and more able to get around. He is ranked the 3rd greatest guitarist in history! We were so close the trumpets were probably spitting on us. At the end, BB threw out pins, gave out a few necklaces and I got one! It was great to get out and forget about everything listening to amazing music.
