Blues @ The White House: Jagger, BB King, Beck

Regardless of your politics, you gotta admit one thing: this White House really knows how to party, and we must admit, having a little blues jam with legends like Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, BB King, and Buddy Guy can make us forget for a while about stuff like unemployment, out-of-control spending and debt, and soaring gasoline prices. After all, don’t we we all need to pay our dues to sing the blues?

 

 

This was an impressive show, with Jagger reminding us why he’s still “The Man.” Check out the above video, featuring Mick’s great rendition of the Otis Redding classic “I Can’t Turn You Loose” followed by an amazing Beck/Jagger collaboration on an early Hubert Sumlin tune, “Commit a Crime.” Beck is so good, it’s scary!
