FILE - In this July 11, 2012 photo shows American blues legend B.B. King performing on stage at the Live at Sunset Festival in Zurich, Switzerland. King is returning to the grounds of the old Mississippi Delta cotton gin where as a teenager in the 1940s he worked as a tractor driver. On Wednesday, Aug. 22, the 86-year-old King will be back in the tiny farming town of Indianola, Miss., to headline his own homecoming celebration. What a decent human being.
