Nobody gets through life unscathed. And right about now, it seems like everybody's got the blues: fired, dumped, divorced, broke, and slipping way too deep into the booze. We got the blues, mama. It is the eternal background music for hard times because the blues will make you laugh and cry through it all, especially when you're sitting in the same room as living legends B.B. King and Buddy Guy.
These ancient guitar gods know what ails us, and their music is the medicine. B.B. remains the reigning King of the Blues, while Eric Clapton has called Buddy the "greatest living guitar player." You'll just have to scrape up some scratch and witness pure greatness this Tuesday at the Hard Rock.
