I found this wonderful account of the memorial for B.B. King in Memphis, TN. No racial strife, no riots, no violence, just everyone together to honor a master Blues artist and wonderful human being.
I had the opportunity some years ago to see B.B. King in concert. We had seats in the center and only a few rows back from the stage. Mr. King was outstanding. No only did he impress with his music, but also with his character as he engaged the audience. Ever generous with his time and talents, B.B. King actively helped many young artists gain recognition throughout his career. He will be sorely missed, but he left us with a wonderful legacy of musical genius.
