Subject: RE: BS: Welcome Larry Saidman.
I actually saw B.B. a few months ago here in Penticton, and it was quite the disappointment.....his voice was still great, but he wasn't able to really 'cut it' musically, and kept repeating himself....singing You Are My Sunshine over and over again.   I felt very bad for this great legend! And he seemed like such a humble person, who really wanted to put on the best show possible.

His band was also disappointing. They came on, and the sax player started soloing.....in a different key from what the rest of the band was playing.

But I had seen him many many years before....and he certainly was one of the best of the best.
