    This past September I had the immense pleasure of being at a private party with less than 50 people featuring Savoy Brown in this incarnation. About 90 minutes playing on an old school friend's back porch. Kim played primarily tunes from Raw Sienna, Looking In, Street Corner Talking, his 1st album Shake Down and most recent release Going To The Delta. The highlight was standing a few feet away watching him play Needle And Spoon. An awesome unforgettable evening, I've been a fan since 1969. Saw some people at the party I havn't seen in 40 years.

    Very good interview with Ry explaining about how he learned to play the guitar, his music, recording etc.

    Not often do you see an interview where the host actually let's a guest give detailed responses without silly interjections all the time.

    ^^^ The ultimate Rhythm and Blues label and my personal fav...

    As Britain stumbled from the grey torpor of the 1950s into the brash glare of the soon-to-be swinging 60s, Guy Stevens' red and yellow Sue label became a talisman for the hippest kids on the block, a marker for the growing divide between the pop mainstream and the burgeoning R&B/Soul underground. This is the first of an important trilogy celebrating the triumphs and heroic failures of Britain's first cult label. Check out the titles in the panel on the left. Here are the echoes of authenticity that rang true for so many music fans seeking a counterpoint to the first noisy flush of British beatdom.

    B.B. King dies at 89


    B.B. King spread joy to millions by giving them the blues.

    The iconic musician, along with his ever-present guitar Lucille, spent nearly 70 years thrilling audiences and spreading the music he learned as a poverty-stricken youth in the Mississippi Delta all over the world.

    King, 89, died in Las Vegas, his attorney announced late Thursday, according to the Associated Press.

    "Blues is a tonic for whatever ails you," King told USA TODAY in 2005. "I could play the blues and then not be blue anymore.''

    The same could be said of those who heard him play. No matter how stormy the tale he'd weave, by the time he was through, the clouds had parted.

    "I fell in love with BB's voice before I ever picked up a guitar,'' said Warren Haynes, guitarist for the Allman Brothers Band, and Gov't Mule, and one of the hundreds of blues and rock musicians inspired by King's fluid, bent-note, vibrato-laden playing style and consummate showmanship. "When I started playing guitar a few years later I realized his voice and his guitar were the same thing. That inspired me to try and achieve that balance myself."

    "B.B. King was one of the few classic blues artists to have songs on mainstream radio,'' noted Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. "Because I was able to hear his guitar playing on the The Thrill is Gone, it showed that given the right song you could sneak some great guitar sounds into top 40 radio."

    Almost as well-known as King's artistry and recordings was his prolific performing schedule. Director Jon Brewer's 2014 documentary B.B. King: The Life of Riley, which featured appearances by Carlos Santana, Bono, Eric Clapton and Ringo Starr, detailed his non-stop touring, which at the time of his death had exceeded 15,000 shows. King outlived his tour manager, Norman Matthews, who died in May 2014.
