Blank on Blank interview

Interview0 Comments

Kings tells his story to Joe Smith. The interview is animated for PBS’s Blank on Blank. King:

This is kind of how blues began — out of feeling misused, mistreated. Feeling like they had nobody to turn to. Blues don’t necessarily have to be sung by a person that came from Mississippi, as I did, because there are people having problems all over the world … When I go on the stage each night, I try my best to outguess my audience. And I like to feel in most cases like I’m a big guy with long rubber arms that I can reach around my audience and swing and sway with them, move them with me.
