Playing Around: B.B. King

B.B. King's awards and list of accomplishments fill eight pages of regular-size paper, single-spaced, in 10-point type. And that's not even including the discography. With Lucille by his side, King has been making and influencing music for six decades, playing up from street corners in his hometown of Itte Bene, Mississippi to the West Lawn of the White House. The 76-year-old performs this Saturday at the Air Force Academy, and yes, tickets are sold out. Call 333-4497.

You never know -- miracles can happen.
