B.B. King dies at 89, the thrill is gone.
As most of you know I do not pay much attention to dancing monkeys I call entertainers, but once in a while one comes along that needs a mention in the chronicles of history, and B.B. King is one such entertainer. I even have a King story to tell.
While I was working at Valley Heating my boss, Blair Swenson, who was a big B.B. King fan handed me two tickets to a B.B. King concert he was not able to use. The concert was at a venue called Fiddlers Green (look it up, great venue) and he paid for seat tickets instead of getting lawn tickets, so we had fantastic seats. I was really happy to get to see him in concert, it is something I will not forget.
