KING CONQUERS JERSEY
B.B. King told a recent Alexandria, VA, crowd that he continues to perform internationally because his great-granddaughter loves money. And though we can believe any line the 85-year-old blues icon croons, that joke cant hold water next to the estimated 15,000 shows the Mississippi singer-songwriter has given over the course of his acclaimed career, one that helped popularize such essential elements of electric blues as string-bending and vibrato. Sorry, Kingyou, I, and Lucille know youre in this for the love, not the moneyand you should rightly reap plenty of both tonight.
