Like My Back Ain't Got No Bone
Christopher and I went to see B.B. King at the North Shore Music Theater last night (meaning "today" as this should be yesterday's post), and I had never seen him before, so this was going to be an interesting show for me. Two great opening bands, one a country rock trio, and the second a rhythm and blues trio, that really shone. Evan Goodnow Band, I believe. B.B. took the stage with an eight-piece band and an entourage to help him up there and to his seat. Some, "observations" about the show...
Whitest.crowd.ever. It was actually confusing.
When one is 85 years old and a legend, you don't have to stand to play guitar anymore. In fact, when one is 85 years old and a legend, you can let the band do most of the heavy lifting and play mostly accent notes all night. ;)
When one is 85 years old and a legend, you can get bored in the middle of a song and start playing something else.
Still, an excellent night in terms of musical bucket list acts, and Christopher and I are good at concerts together. Fun time, good music, and a good way to wind down a long and trying work day.
