[BluesList] St. Louis concertgoers sing the blues after erratic performance by 88-year-old B.B. King - Seymour Tribune

So would I, if it didn't mean paying $200 for the privilege of
watching him sleep-walk through the identical routine night after night.
I love B.B. like he's my own kin, and I'd go see him if I could hang
out with him like we used to do in the old days. But nobody can do
that anymore. He's got too many self-important handlers keeping
people away, and the show described in this article has been the norm
for at least a decade now. Nobody buys a ticket to the King of the
Blues to hear him sing "You Are My Sunshine," let alone dawdle with
it for 20 minutes.
Even the King of the Blues has to hang 'em up some time.
Unfortunately, it's overdue.
