Earlier today BB King was hospitalized due to diabetes-related dehydration as confirmed by Mr. King’s daughter. Currently the 89 year old Blues guitar Legend is feeling better and has updated fans that he will be leaving hospital today.
I just finished reading Buddy Guy’s When I Left Home written by the acclaimed Mr. David Ritz and a thought occurred to me that I want more. I came up with the thought of listing the literature available about the lives of the greatest Blues artists here for my own To-do list and to recommend it to others.
Eric Clapton doesn’t look seventy but it’s his 70th Birthday. Sincere congratulations in hopes that the mind is keen and the body will remain strong for another 30 years or until the man gets tired of it all.
Buddy Guy’s Legends, the well of memories that will quench my thirst for a couple lives to come. If I reincarnate as a caterpillar, I’ll still tell the butterflies around, about the times I’ve been in this Chicago’s Blues club.
D’Addario Chromes Flat Wound ECG24, Jazz Light, 11-50. I’d compare it to a freakishly weird sex. You know it’s a fetish but it still leaves a smiling memory engraved in your mind.
I’ve been mesmerized by the thought of seeing the streets where Blues was born, hearing the authentic sounds of Chicago and Memphis, washing my face in Mississippi and whispering a humble “thank you” at the last resting places of my greatest influencers.
