Weekend Musical Diversion: Buddy and B.B.

November 20, 2010

I’ve been a bit reflective lately about life.  That is why this song from Buddy Guy’s recently released CD Living Proof really struck me.  It’s a collaboration between Buddy and fellow blues legend B.B. King.  I really love the reflective tone in the lyrics and the sense of gratitude that these legends express throughout the song.  But I especially like the last minute of this video where B.B. and Buddy exchange some thoughts over the tasty blues licks and the touching statement at the end when B.B. King says to Buddy Guy, “when I’m pushing up daisies, don’t forget you’re still my Buddy.”

Enjoy your weekend!

You know…I’m loving these videos you’ve been sharing. And it is the reflective voice that really makes this shine.

It reminds me, too, that life is pretty wonderful when we’re around our friends. Tim…it’s truly and deeply good to call you friend…

Beautiful. I love this.
The music, lyrics, and comments made me reflective, too. So, I’m saying to you my friend — thank you so much for being there for me and know that I’m there for you, too.
P.S. That goes for you, too, Lance.

Hi Lance: Thanks for your good words…I feel honored and thankful to call you a friend, as well. That song really hit me on a lot of levels…Buddy and B.B. are two of my favorite musicians, both legends. But I really appreciate the gratitude they express in this song. Just one example of how blues music is not just about sad, dark moments. It also hits me at a time when my mother is experiencing some major health issues right now. I am reminded that the thoughts expressed in the song are great for someone to express not only in their later years, but also in one’s early years. Thanks, Lance, for your support and friendship – have a great weekend!

Hi Lori: Thank you for your friendship and support during these crazy times- they mean a lot to me. I’m glad you enjoyed the song and its reflective nature. Both you and Lance remind me that it really is possible to meet good people, good friends online and provide support from a distance. Thank you, also, for being a love fountain that splashes upon everyone you meet. Your love missions, described on JBN, have been a very enlightening and inspiring for me and your readers. Have a great weekend!
