Blues legend Bb King plans to continue performing past his 80th birthday next month (SEP05), because music keeps him young.

Until recently the guitarist regular performed 250 dates a year and he has already notched up over 80 this year alone - and he has no plans to slow down because he believes a hectic schedule is good for him.

He says, "I do it because I still get a kick out of it. I still love performing. It keeps me young."
