  1. Wow, I was listening to a song by him and BB, King this morning. They were jamming. I must say I kind of like the blues these days. R.I.P.

  2. As a Memphis-born girl, I just wanted to say R.I.P. to Mr. Bobby Blue Bland-as he will surely be sorely missed in Tenn. and beyond! Feelin’ a lil’ sad, yet hopeful that he is now entertaining up in Heaven for all to enjoy..Kudos for this tribute, Brothawolf!

  3. P.S. B.B. King of course, is a treasure to behold as a musician and human being as well. Met him when I was 18 yrs. old and he played for me and some friends (and even graciously let us hear him for free)!

  4. Oh yes, Brothawolf it was so cool I felt like I was in a dream, almost surreal.. B.B. is just as cool as you think he’d be, and then some! It’s hard to find people who sound even better live than they do on CD!
