Migration — Thrill Still There

Monday, September 29, 2008

Missed Friday because of various computer problems. Downloads that lost my stuff, emails that wouldn’t go through, and various other problems. By the time I got ready to write, it was time to go see the real King. Though he no longer plays Lucille and sings at the same time, the man still has it. He tells wonderful stories. His riff on Dr. Viagra is a hoot. And boy can he flirt! But the music rules all. His band is tighter than a streetwalker’s skirt. Of course it’s mostly blues, that’s the band’s name, after all. But they jammed with the New Orleans sound, too. My favorite was B.B. and his guitar players in instrumental mode. He closed with his million-seller and everyone in the place knew the thrill was still most definitely there, even the people who ran in and out all night for more beer, more beer, more beer. And late today running back and forth.
