Caption and photos by Andy ArgyrakisBetween the brand new career-spanning documentary "The Life of Riley" and a soundtrack of the same name, there's a lot brewing in B.B. King's camp as of late, though chances are the "King of the Blues" would've been on tour anyway. In fact, at 88-years-old, the guitar god's schedule looks just as heavily populated as ever, leading to yet another sold out show at Joliet's historic Rialto Square Theatre. Despite of having to pull up a chair to perform, the man born Riley B. King and his longtime guitar sidekick Lucille were still on fire as he bellowed and feverously finger picked through history making originals and genre bedrocks, backed by one of the most dependable bands ever to grace the business.
