Photo of the Century

I had the honor of sharing the area of Downtown Boulder with one of my heroes this weekend. I played a friend's wedding and reception at an art gallery on Spruce while BB King had a show a block over on Pearl Street. I suggested to one of the waitresses that he was welcome to sit in if he happened to show up.

His tour busses were parked in front as he was staying at the Hotel Boulderado across the street. A mutual friend of the groom and mine saw the blues legend as he left the early set up. He suggested that his 4th grade son say hi.

BB King was gracious with his time and gave the young man a couple of guitar picks. How cool is that?

A lengthy career has generated neither enemies nor bad stories. Every time you hear a BB King story it is like this one and not "he got drunk and beat up his girlfriend." Eternal HOSS.

(And today's password is "g!bs0n" love it.)
