B.B. King and John Mayer Live At The Grammy Nominations Concert
Yep, These Are Really GOOD TIMES…
B.B. King performed alongside John Mayer on Dec. 3, 2008 during the The Grammy Nominations Concert. They played the King’s cover version of the classic “Let the Good Times Roll.” This jump blues standard was originally recorded by Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five. In 1947, it peaked at number 2 on the Billboard R&B chart. It also received several other praises and recognition.
In 2009, the song was acknowledged with a Grammy Hall of Fame Award and was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 2013 in the “Classic of Blues Recording — Singles or Album Tracks” category.
John Mayer and B.B. King have dominated the stage for quite a number of times. Though they’re from different generations, they have great chemistry and it’s amazing how they play off each other. It’s magical especially since Mayer used to be in the acoustic rock genre until he began moving to the blues which was what actually influenced him as a music artist.
It was a great performance by two talented musicians. Maybe they’ll consider more collaborations, right? That would be plain awesome!
