Roseland Theater

[THE BLUES] You know you are a music legend when virtually any compliment anyone gives you tends to border on hyperbole. Such is life for B.B. King. Arguably the greatest blues guitar player ever (see?)—and certainly the most popular—he has done much to bring the genre into the mainstream throughout his 60-plus years as a musician. Listening to his tales of woe and regret and his signature guitar sound, you have to wonder if many of the players who have come after him must have the blues knowing they can’t play like he can. At age 87, he still plays more than 100 shows a year and feels the blues rattling around in his bones as deeply as ever.
