ON THE COVER…

The King of the Chitlin Circuit proves it’s never too late to get a Grammy when he won Acoustic Blues Album of the Year with Porcupine Meat in 2017, at 83 years of age.

“After I pinched myself for about 40 seconds, I found out what it means being on stage receiving a Grammy. I couldn’t believe it for a moment, I was numb, but I was just so thankful and so blessed to be standing there.”

This photograph was taken at an event held to honour the closing of B.B. Kings Blues Club & Grill in New York City. Performances were by Bobby Rush and Buddy Guy with special guest Tom Hambridge. You can find the story on page 20 of this issue.
