Open MIC Hoted by Gerry Moss
GENERAL ENTERTAINMENT AND MANAGEMENT
BB King with Gerry Moss (far right) and the Famous Unknowns.
The Famous Unknowns was the first house band at BB King’s club in Memphis.
The passing of BB King leaves a large hole in our hearts.
Rest in peace, BB. We’ll miss you dearly.
Interesting how life at times seems like chapters in a book.
Being at the right place at the right time in this instance at BB Kings during the Famous Unknowns period in the 90's
Paul McCartney was playing Memphis and his band shows up at BB'a where we were playing wanting to set in . Surreal musical experience to say the least ..Super nice guys. Not pictured Stuart Hamish former member of average white band also sat in that night.
The kicker was Paul Wix showed us his appreciation saying there will be VIP seats for your band at the McCartney concert if you wish to attend. Stupid me almost didn't go but last minute decision proved to be a good one .. Amazing concert. Like I said right place right time can be a surprising and lasting memory.
