83-year old B.B. King and his
sidekick, Lucille, thrill an Oakland
audience. King was scheduled to
present the Blues Foundation’s
B.B. King Entertainer of the Year
Award at the 30th annual Blues
Music Awards in Memphis in May.
King won the award eight times,
so his consideration was retired in
2006 and the award was named
after him in his honor.
