INDIANOLA, MISS. (AP) - When B.B. King took the stage at the 32nd annual B.B. King Homecoming in the small Mississippi town of Indianola, he introduced each member of his band.
Then he introduced himself. At 86, King may move a little slower than he once was, but there's no question about his ability to please fans. Some die-hard fans came from as far away as Britain to hear him sing the blues.
It was an intimate performance, with King seated inches from the crowd at the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center in Indianola.
He closed with one of his anthems, "The Thrill is Gone."
For fans on a summer night in the Mississippi Delta, the thrill was back.
