Tony Coleman spent almost 30 years as the drummer for B.B. King.. There is an article in American Blues Scene magazine by Stacy jeffress about Tony’s time spend with B.B. King, and a lot of other stuff of extreme interest.  One of the things he goes into is putting a new spin on the blues.  As Tony puts it, Blues has been rocked and rolled to death… Tony places B.B. King up there with the likes of Martin Luther King, Gandhi, and JFK…He talks about putting all the experience he gained over the years, and putting it back into a better kind of blues…Blues with a funk.  As a matter his new CD coming out soon is called Blue Funk.  We have a link to Stacy’s article on the bluesnews page at BTIC.com

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 18-19, 2015

The Jus Blues Music Awards will take place Thursday, July 30th through Saturday, August 1st. We mentioned earlier that Calvin Richardson will serve as the celebrity host for the event in Tunica Mississippi this year. They will honor Kenny Neal, Betty Wright, Lucky Peterson, Vasti Jackson, Fred Wesley, Eddy The Chief Clearwater and many many more… Yours truly Rojene Bailey will be on the panel to discuss the Technologies of today and the art of Syndication, like I know something about that…But I will be there.. For more information, we have a link to the Awards weekend on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In the City.com…

Buddy Guy’s new BCD, Born To Play Guitar, will be out July 31st… We mentioned this before, and the reason we’re mentioning it again is the anticipation of the Buddy Guy Fans. They are waiting for this BCD. It’s not like he’s never done this before. On July 30th, there will be a Buddy Guy 79th Birthday and Release Party. This is really cool…It will take place at Buddy Guy’s in Chicago. If you’re going, you’d better get there early. The show is scheduled to start at 9:30 pm, but getting there early in this case means about 12 noon….. There is a link to the info on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The City.com

To our great surprise, we have not found or heard of anything pertaining to the accusations that were made by B.B. Kings’ daughters. If you recall, when they went to court accusing B.B. handlers of elder abuse, neglect, and poisoning him, but the judge threw the case out for lack of evidence. Let us hope for B.B.’s lifetime of hard work and the legacy he left for keeping the blues on the forefront, we will always remember him for the man he was…The King of The Blues….
