I’ve been lucky to have seen some of the greatest there ever were:
from The Dead and The Band and The Stones, Dylan and Jimi and Neil & Crazy Horse or Pearl Jam to Van Cliburn and the Russian Philharmonic at the height of the Cold War to Frank Sinatra and Woody Herman’s Thundering Herd.
Nobody can bring it quite like B. B.
People stand up ’cause they want to, ’cause they feel the need.
They’ll get up out of their wheelchairs when the feeling moves them.
And you look at B. B., and you look at every face in the crowd…
… nothing but love flowing back and forth.
With B. B. to keep you company, the worst of times don’t matter.
Without him, the best of them wouldn’t count.
