B.B. King

In November 1997, I saw B.B. King at the Des Moines Civic Center.

Lessons learned from seeing the King (these are not limited to playing guitar and singing):

1) Start with a smile and a kind word;
2) Everyone on stage is important - publicly recognize that;
3) Listen to each other;
4) Only contribute in a way that makes everything better;
5) Silence can be as powerful as, and maybe more powerful than, emphatic noise; and
6) Nothing important should be rushed.
