Meeting B.B. King - A True Legend

When I was 22, I had the immense honor of meeting B.B. King thanks to my mom, a fellow musician.  After a performance, we met up with him in the green room and he spent a few minutes chatting with us.  He seemed to thoroughly enjoy connecting with us, but maybe that was just his style.  As I left, he handed me an autographed photo.  At the time, I didn't fully understand the enormity of his legacy.  What I saw that day was a mega-talented gentleman who was beautifully generous with his time and someone who had lots of stories to tell beyond those eyes of his.  I wish I'd been able to hear more of them.  A true legend.
