U2-ness at B.B. King show @ 12:22 am

slfcllednowhere:
I'm currently feelin: sleepy sleepy

Just got back from seeing B.B. (and Dr. John) here in Houston. When B.B. was introducing his band, the following occurred:

B.B.: There have been so many people who have done so many things for me. One of them is this band U2--
ME: Whooooooooooo!
B.B.: They have this guitar player they like to call The Edge--
ME: WHOOOOOOOO!
B.B: *pause* No, they're not here.

Heh, it was pretty cool. Then he said that Edge "makes the guitar sound like a rhythm section" and that the only other guy he's ever heard do that is the guy in his band.

Oh, and later he did play When Love Comes to Town, a really cool long jazzy version with horns.

This has nothing to do with U2, but I love your icon. Too bad Tilley couldn't be saved. Didn't they demolish that place recently?
I would've loved to go explore it.

They did, but they actually saved the portion of the wall he's on. But yeh, it was a crazy-freaky place, that whole town is really. . .

BB King is awesome. When I saw him.... well, it was probably one of my 5 favorite shows I've ever attended.
