Bluesin’ with Little Brother-Circa 1997

Happy freakin’ Monday!

All hail the late King of blues, B.B. King! I’ve got nothing more to share today than the blues, baby ❤

“Pleeeaaaase let me come back home…”

I love the blues. Why? It’s got soul.

The blues is about admitting your hardships, looking life straight in the eye, and overcoming those battles. Sure-the underlining is melancholy, but it’s deep and it comes from the heart.

An interesting fact: LIKE FRIEND JOHNNY CASH, PRISONS WERE GOOD TO B.B.

“King’s message of universal hope, love, peace and joy has touched all! He’s famously played in several prisons over his career, including in 1992 when he played at a Florida correctional facility where one of his daughters was incarcerated, and his landmark 1971 Live From Cook County Jail, which spent three weeks at the Billboard R&B chart, and was ranked one of Rolling Stone’s most influential albums of all time!”

 

 

 

Tomorrow: “Crash” by Dave Matthews Band I say my hell is the closet I’m stuck inside
can’t see the light.
