B. B. King 1986

It was with great sadness that I learned of the death of Mr King this morning, I had been a fan since the early 1980's.
In 1986 he came to a city near to my home, so tickets were purchased so myself and a friend could go to the gig.
It was a fantastic evening, the man was on great form, very polished and entertaining.
Most of these photo's were taken from close to the front while sitting on my friends shoulders; I used a Canon film camera with 50mm lens and Kodak Tri-x which I pushed a stop (EI800)
After the show we stuck around and actually got to meet Mr King, shake hands and have a little chat-he was a true gentleman and a legendary performer.
God bless and many thanks.
