BB is the blues. I've never seen him live, but went to his web site awhile back to see if he would be in the area and was blown away by his schedule. For 81 years old he still travels a great deal. Best wishes BB.

HOUSTON - B.B. King was discharged from a Galveston hospital Saturday following treatment for a fever and was "back to his old self," a spokeswoman for his management agency said.

The 81-year-old, Grammy-winning bluesman was "feeling fabulous," said Tina France, vice president of Lieberman Management of New York.

King had been scheduled to perform Thursday at the Grand Opera House, but was admitted to The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, said Paul McCarthy, a hospital administrator.

King still plans to perform Tuesday in Fort Worth, France said. Concerts that had been scheduled before then in Galveston, Orange and Tyler will be rescheduled for June, she said.

King, who has a history of diabetes, had a 100.4-degree fever following a bout with the flu, and monitoring was required because of his age, said France. Doctors treated him with antibiotics, she said.

He was kept in the hospital's elderly acute care unit as a precaution, said John Koloen, a spokesman for the hospital in Galveston, about 50 miles southeast of Houston.

With his trademark guitar that he named "Lucille," King is one of the nation's most influential and best-known blues musicians. His long list of hits includes "The Thrill is Gone," "Every Day I Have the Blues" and "You Upset Me Baby," and he was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1987.

He has become a spokesman in the fight against diabetes, and in December President Bush awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Great to hear BB is well and out of the hospital! I imagine with his diabetes and age he really has to watch things. Read in the paper that he's playing Ft Worth tonight...Hai?

BB King, Live at Sing Sing

If you don't have this DVD, do yourself a favor, and check it out.

made by the inmates a Sing Sing. it's a really good docu...

here is a brief description that i ripped off from the web...

In 1972 legendary bluesman B.B. King joined forces with folk singer Joan Baez for a highly unique concert. Setting up in New York's notorious Sing Sing maximum security prison, the two music stars had a daunting task on their hands as they took to a makeshift stage to play before some hardened inmates. But fortunately the performances proved to be a celebratory experience for all involved, with the musicians and prisoners both enjoying the occasion. Even the hardened wardens were spotted tapping their toes along the the music! King later claimed that it was one of the finest performances of his career, and the concert is presented here in its entirety.
