This is somewhat related to bourbon. One of the benefits of living in Lincoln, Nebraska is the Zoo BAr, a nationally known blues
venue. over the past 25 years i have heard such blues greats as Luthur Allison, Charlie musslewhite, Jimmy Thackery and
Magic Slim. I have spent many an enjoyable evening listening to the blues and sipping on bourbon.
Lincoln is also home to The Lied Center for Performing Arts, a fantastic venue for musical and theatrical productions. Last night
I had the privilege to hear B.B King at the Lied. I filled a flask with Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve and picked up one of my
favorite ladies. We had seats in row 3, dead center. B.B King was less that 30 feet from me.
He sat in a folding chair and played nearly non-stop for almost an hour and forty five minutes. We nipped at the flask and listened
to some of the best blues I have heard in years. He said that at 75 years of age the band said he had the right to sit down and
play if he wanted to, and he wanted to. Even at 75 years of age when it comes to the blues he is still "da man".
