At ninety-four years young, after more than six decades of playing rock-solid blues and boogie piano, Pinetop Perkins has traveled a lot of highways, pounded out a lot of boogies and made a lot of friends. One look a the all-star cast who gathered to create “Pinetop and Friends” lets you know just how beloved he is. Included in the line up are his old pal B.B. King, guitar legend Eric Clapton and Jimmy Vaughan.
