BB King Receives Lifetime Achievement Award
Blues legend BB King’s contribution to black music was honoured at the third Mobo Awards last Wednesday (October 14) when he was given the event’s lifetime achievement award.
The Edge, who played with him on the U2 single When Love Comes To Town, presented him with the award to a standing ovation at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
King, who had his 73rd birthday last month, made his first recordings for Bullet Records in 1949. Among the other winners at the Malibu-sponsored event were Puff Daddy, receiving both the best international act and the outstanding achievement prizes, and Loose Ends’ Carl Macintosh, who won the Mobo Choice FM contribution to black music award.
