EP 71 – Bobby Rush Podcast
Meet the King of the Chitlin’ Circuit: Bobby Rush. The Grammy Award winning artist has recorded almost 400 songs in close to 70 years. He’ll be 87 years old this November, and even though he doesn’t do over 200 shows a year any more, you can still find him out there working whatever room he’s in.
This month, Bobby released Sitting on ‘Top of the Blues’, his 26th studio album and 75th career release on Aug 16th. Bobby reflects on his legacy, his last encounter with B.B. King, a meeting with Martin Luther King Jr., and the importance of being himself as a performer.
