B.B. King: The Life Of Riley
The legendary B.B. King – one of the last Mississippi bluesmen – died in May 2015 at the age of 89. This documentary was screened in 2012, and as far as possible in the time allotted takes a comprehensive look back at his life. It includes archive footage, and contributions from numerous contemporaries – musicians and others – including the man himself.
King visits his birthplace, reminisces about his childhood, and tells us a few things we might not have known including how he developed his particular guitar sound, that he once worked as a disc jockey, and that he broke into radio by writing a jingle for Pep-ti-kon.
All in all this is a well rounded documentary, what shines through most is his humility, something for which certain musicians are not exactly renowned.
The great B. B.King
This is a must see if you love the blues, American music or if you want to know where so much of the influences of modern rock came from. I saw him at DTE Music Theater in Pontiac MI and even though it is a huge outdoor venue he made me feel like I was sitting in his living room listening to his stories. That’s how great he was, and so many people who are interviewed in this show talk about that same thing. Great documentary.
