Brave blues legend Bb King marked his 10,000th performance with a show at his club on New York City's Times Square on Monday night (17APR06) - despite burying his son on Sunday (16APR06) and learning one of his grandsons had been shot dead. THE THRILL IS GONE legend wowed the audience at the BB King Club + Grill with a selection of his hits, and masked his heartbreak after losing his son LEONARD to colorectal cancer. King, who lost a 14-year-old grandson earlier last week (ends14APR06) after he was gunned down in a shop, drove through the night from Mississippi to arrive in New York on time, according to the New York Daily News.
