B.B King: On the roadJon Brewer
"You say blues, you gotta say BB." Blues legend B.B. King was always on the road, for over 65 years with hardly a break, giving about 18,000 performances. On the Road offers the viewer a chance to join him on this adventure, a journey along the days and nights along the way, from the very beginning of his tour days up to the great milestones of his unrivaled career.
Director Jon Brewer meets a lot of people who traveled with B.B. King. They were his 'on-the-road family'. Former band members, family and companions talk about the blues legend and the challenges they encountered along the way. They share unforgettable memories of a much-loved King and historic moments such as the 'Chitlin Circuit' or stadium concerts with The Rolling Stones and U2. A film for music fans and for cinephiles who enjoy the beauty inspired by the timeless beauty of the American highways.
