B.B. King Heckled At Recent Concert
The Star Tribune reports that King only performed a handful of complete songs, with the majority of the evening made up of "meandering musical snippets, long-winded soliloquies" and "a backing band that missed its cues."
One attendee said: "Is he a living legend? Absolutely. Do I love his music? You bet. But when you're paying $150 you expect to see a show." But another reported the crowd weren't simply heckling - instead they were suggesting song titles as a way of turning King's attention back to the show. He added: "Everybody was respectful that this guy is 88 years old. It was painful to watch." more on this story
