BB KING: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

We didn’t realize how lucky we were growing up in Chicago because BB King was a frequent performer in Old Town. In our late teens, armed with fake IDs, our boyfriends would take us downtown to witness The Blues and sip forbidden drinks like Singapore Slings. At the time we didn’t realize how important BB King would become – we just loved the music. Now he’s gone, but far from forgotten. Above is a video of BB and Bobby Blue Bland on Soul Train in 1975. Check out those lapels.

    That was “real” music — with talented musicians.

    He was the real deal. I saw him in Ann Arbor in 1968 and he stayed out in the audience and signed every single request for an autograph until the place was empty.

    He was a national treasure and I hope we all listen to a tune in his memory.

    Poor poor Catone……has been in so many flea bags, while Strom stays in 5 stars. BB was a great entertainer and hard worker, a great model that the Obama group will never follow.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
