Blues legend B.B. King comes to the Mountain State with a performance at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at West Virginia University's Creative Arts Center in Morgantown.
Since he started recording in the 1940s, King has released more than 60 albums, many of which are considered blues classics like 1965's "Live At The Regal" and 1976's "Together For The First Time." It was in 1970 that his hit "The Thrill Is Gone" began his legacy of hit music that continued with "Riding With The King,""When Love Comes To Town,""Rock Me Baby" and "Sweet Little Angel," to name just a few. King was been recognized for his musical contributions with induction into multiple Halls of Fame, 18 Grammy Awards and a Presidential Medal of the Arts.
