The Kid Should See This

B.B. King, live on stage in Stockholm (1974)

From his visit to Stockholm, Sweden in 1974, this is BB King and his band playing live at Konserthuset, The Stockholm Concert Hall. The performance starts at 1m20s. The opening of the video is a brief interview with The King of Blues as he reflects on the experience thirty years later.

Favorite BB King quote: “The beautiful thing about learning is nobody can take it away from you.”
