B.B. King

Jon had free tickets to see blues legend B.B. King at Summerfest last night and who am I to turn anything free down? (Seriously.) Especially as B.B. is 84 years old, the poster child for diabetes and not walking too spritely. His voice and guitar, however, were ageless.

Here is a horrendous Blackberry photo from our camera with B.B. not 50 feet away and us perfectly situated next to the water, in the breeze, and being served wine and food by a waitstaff and away from the ridiculous crowds. [Locals description of Summerfest? You haven't really been until you've seen a fight. Check.]  

That would be Jon's boss sitting in the shaded section on the stage to the left of B.B. and his band. We also spied Brewers player Rickie Weeks in our midst. And everyone in shorts, Tevas and the occasional fanny pack. A crowd better fitting Great America, chilling in the VIP section of the world's biggest music festival. Got to love the Midwest.
