Arthur Neilson with B.B. King
July 2000

In the summer of 2000, while on tour with Shemekia,

we opened several dates for B.B. King.

This was taken backstage in London.

B.B. jokingly asked me for guitar lessons.

I watched him from the side of the stage every night.

I'm the one who got the guitar lessons!

Arthur Neilson with Les Paul

This picture was taken on my birthday at Iridium, NYC.

Les called me onstage, but, since I didn't have a guitar with me,

he gave me his "Les Paul" to play and said "I'm going to the bar for a drink."

After the show, we talked in the lobby for over an hour.

It was one of my most memorable birthdays.
