Riley "B.B." King performs more than 250 concerts each year. Says King of his trademark dressed-up style for performing, "I like to think that when you go on stage you should never go on stage with the clothes that you wore in the street. If I go and see a concert and see everybody in overalls . . . it is not as exciting to me as to see them looking like they are show people." Photo credit: Michael P. Smith
