blues lesson #13 B.B. King and Buddy Guy......this is it folks, there are not many left.

don`t miss these two legends.....if you are in so.cal., they`ll be playing at San Manuel Casino August 12th. B.B. king will blow your mind. he actually seems to be talking and telling stories these days more then playing. he is so alive for getting up there in age........crazy thing is, he never really plays any chords at all, he just plays little riffs between the chorus........

Buddy Guy is still sick....... i`ve got some great memories when Junior Wells used to play with him before he unfortuantely passed. Buddy is still a madman. ( irish rich, they are also playing with Al Green at Red Rock Amphitheatre in Morrison, Co. aug. 25th, this show will absolutely destroy...)

If you ever get the nuts to come here and dodge potholes I will take you to a spot that will blow your doors off. And you will be afraid entering and leaving, your all good once your inside.

I was fortunate enough to see King last year for the first time, so glad I did before he's gone.

Saw BB with my parents at Symphony Hall in SLC when i was probably 14. it was great, wish i knew who opened. it was just some younger white dude with a guitar in his lap playing it like a lap steel.
still need to see buddy guy though.

See you in October CHi-Town Smartass
