B.B. King: Keepin' The Blues Alive

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, September 1976

THE WORD "blues" has become almost synonymous with the word "king", be it Albert, Freddie or B.B. The blues as a musical form has existed almost since the beginning of music – in one form or another. Since the blues is basically music that stems from reality there's every reason for thinking that it will always be around.
