The Monday Morning Quote #318

“Be not afraid of going slowly; be only afraid of standing still.”

Chinese Proverb

B.B. KIng – RIP

Shame to lose such a great man, he lived on a bus for large amounts of his working life, made many farewell tours and was still playing more than 100 nights a year in his late 80s.

What differentiated him was his ability to make his music swing when he played – with a lot of Bluesmen (Kings Albert and Freddie) you could sit and get off on their playing but with BB you felt that you wanted to get up and dance. I saw him play on a “farewell” tour 9 years ago at the NEC – he did not disappoint.

Did he ever play and sing at the same time I wonder?
