Is blues legend B.B. King still performing?
–Burt Burleson, Kansas City, Kan.
The guitarist and singer-songwriter, born Riley B. King near Indianola, Miss., and his famed guitar Lucille continue to play up a storm. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, 86, who has Type II diabetes, just toured the U.S. and Canada and will head to Europe in July. The "King of the Blues" played a sold-out performance in London last year, resulting in B.B. King: Live at Royal Albert Hall 2011, recently released on CD, DVD and Blu-ray.
