Blog 2, The BB King Concert

Calgary, Alberta

Eighty-five year old BB King put on a wonderful concert tonight.  For a grandpa, he still has an amazing voice.   Two things I regret:  the first was that the sound guys didn’t have the system set up properly, so the first 30 seconds of the opening song did damage to most people’s ears, including mine – my ear drums hurt.  The second thing I regret was not listening to my wife.  She told me I should take my Les Paul guitar to the concert and ask BB King to sign it.  I didn’t think there would be an opportunity for that to happen.  But Grandpa King left plenty of time at the end of the concert to throw out BB King Guitar picks, necklaces and to autograph stuff.  If I had listened, I could be playing a guitar, signed by the blues master himself!
