Indianola, Mississippi

I was invited to a blues concert while hanging around Greenville, so that night I drove in to Indianola, Mississippi which is the birthplace of the legendary B.B. King. In a small, sweaty juke joint called "The SteelHouse" I listened to real blues music for the first time in my life. Jerry Fair, the guitarist and a relative of B.B. King was pouring out the sound and sweat not because of the Delta heat that was starting to show it's fury, but because it hurts that bad to play the blues that well.
