B.B. King coming to Appleton

Back when I was a young boy....
Hang on, let me re-phrase that....WAY back when I was a young boy I was drawn to the guitar, fascinated with the way the best could almost make that instrument sing. Men like Jimmy Hendrix and Ernie Isley were electric heavy-metal gold. I loved the way they played. I loved their music. And then there was B.B. King, who played a different kind of music but was no less memorizing to me.

These talented musicians are just a few of the reasons why I took up guitar lessons, and why at some point I pretty much stopped playing, frustrated by the cold, hard fact that I would never be able to play like them.

B.B. King is a legend, and it is not often you get a chance to see a legend work his craft for you.

B.B. still plays with passion and remains on the road for his love of the game. We're lucky he feels that way because we get that chance to watch a legend in action.

B.B. comes to the Fox Cities PAC on Saturday night, June 1st.

It's my chance to see a legend and his passion in person.

I'll be giving away a pair of tickets Monday thru Friday this week on the PhilCast so be sure to be listening for my B.B. King Quiz to win the tickets. Keep in mind this is ME doing a quiz, so as per usual, you don't need a wealth of knowledge to win....just a will and want to go see and hear some great blues.

And if you don't win the tickets this week, just CLICK HERE to order on line.

B.B. King at the PAC June 1st...the thrill is certainly not gone.
