People in common, especially fame, will hold a lavish party to celebrate their birthday. Unlike those who do so, legend B.B. King has his own way to mark his birthday. The singer, who will turn 80 on September 16, held a special birthday benefit to raise money for a museum bearing his name.

Made an appearance in the performance held at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, King was joined by Rockin' Dopsie Jr. and Deborah Coleman. Also helped highlight the event was the video tributes by Eric Clapton and Bonnie Raitt. Attending the Isle of Capri Casinos sponsored event, among others Bruce Willis, Dr. John and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Profit from the event, hosted by TV personality Montel Williams, will be used to fund the $10 million B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center in Indianola, which project planned to finish by 2007.
