Lightning Boy is "King Bee"

Drytown Club, Amador County -- Lightning Boy Kory Gibbs belts out Slim Harpo's "King Bee " with his band Saturday, 4-20-13, at the Drytown Club. Baby Boomers know The Stones and Blues Brothers also adapted "King Bee" to their genre of blues.

If only John Belushi could hear Lightning Boy's riffs. Maybe The Stones will hear him on their upcoming tour, possibly dubbed "This May (Really) Be The Last Time." Tick-Tock, Mick.
