Brad Sondahl BB King thoughts (6) BB King thoughts 07 May 98

I was listening to BB King (Completely Well) yesterday, and thinking about how even though he has great arrangements, great guitar, great songs, and great voice, he comes off less real than contemporaries Muddy Waters or Howlin Wolf. It seems like he figured out the perfect blues scale and just trots off variations on it. I think I'm prejudiced because I always picture him playing in Las Vegas instead of Chicago, so he seems more of a showboy than a homeboy. Anybody else have strong feelings on this?
