B.B. King for 2005? ... I am not too sure, but then again it could be a possibility as he is approaching 80. I saw him perform earlier this year and he was full of energy. There is a blues club in the entertainment district in Memphis, Tennessee where he sometimes performs and I have included a picture of it below.

Can't see the number of kids he's procreated having a lot to do with his fate date tho'.

There are olympic athletes could take BB King's place, that man looks good for 90 if not 100.

I wonder what happens to poor Lucille when BB finally goes unto the void.

 

I'll enter two guesses, either BB is buried with Lucille or it goes to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

On the topic of B.B. King, he has suffered a double tragedy, yet still continued on to do his 10,000th show.

 

As if we needed anymore proof that this guy isn't going anywhere anytime soon...

BB King now fighting flu like symptoms in hospital- similar to what James Brown was rushed into hospital for the daybefore he died...

I saw BB King perform last night at the Minnesota State Fair. for someone who is due to be 82 in a couple of weeks time he was in fine form.

His voice was powerful, although he only performed for an hour and talked through most of the set.

 

Etta James were there also fresh out of the hospital. She was on stage for an hour too and for someone who was discharged from hospital a short time ago, she was great.

 

Both James and King arrived on stage on motorised wheelchairs

Seems a strange choice for DL 2009, does BB. Only 83...

 

I saw him perform in November. It seems like a valid choice to me. He's obese, diabetic and losing stamina. He still puts on a great show though, albeit from a comfortable seated position. About 50% spoken word and not much performance in the second half of a 80 minute show. Check out his last album and tell me the subject matter doesn't suggest he's ready to depart.

I think the DL are going for a bluesman double, after Bo Diddley went skyward last year...

Listening to his show, it sure sounds like he intends to go out "on the road."

BB Kinng is the best, He not die in 2009!

Are they connected to B.B. King in any way, shape or form, apart from their homonymous name?
