Happy Birthday Mr. B. B. King

Riley B. King was born on this day, September 16, 1925 near Berclair, Mississippi. He is 88 years young and continues to performs live for audiences in the United States. My wife and I have seen him nine times live and love to listen to his stories he so lovingly shares with us.

“Initially he worked at WDIA as a singer and disc jockey, gaining the nickname Beale Street Blues Boy, which was later shortened to Blues Boy and finally to B.B.”

Happy Birthday B.B. King. May you continue to lead the life of Riley 🙂
