    Just got back from a theatre in Waukegan where I listened to BB King and his band. For 82 years old, the dude can still belt out some tunes, that and the very distinctive sound coming from his guitar. Doesn't really sing a lot of songs as he chats quite a bit with the audience and uses his 8 member band to fill in quite a bit, 4 brass, drums, base, guitar and keyboard. Not sure how much longer he'll be around, but grateful I got to see him in person.

    Seen him three times. He's a real gentleman and a National Treasure. Does his band still set up their own equipment?
