B.B. King: How blue can he get?
B.B. King: How blue can he get?

No man has ever looked happier singing and playing the blues than B.B. King, or given audiences such joy with songs riddled with such pain. The 87-year-old guitarist and singer adores being onstage, and has released more live albums than he has children. (Almost.) His most recent studio effort, however, is 2008's T. Bone Burnett-produced One Kind Favor, an acoustic-shaded late-career peak that doesn't blanch at confronting his mortality. King has retained strong ties to Houston since the Duke/Peacock days, and we may yet see him again this year, because he's already signed on for three weeks of Peter Frampton's "Guitar Circus" summer tour.
