TITLE: B.B. King, CS Wannabe AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: September 01, 2008 2:31 PM DESC: ----- BODY: The Parade magazine insert to my Sunday paper contained an interview with legendary bluesman B.B. King that included this snippet:
There's never a day goes by that I don't miss having graduated and gone to college. If I went now, I would major in computers and minor in music. I have a laptop with me all the time, so it's my tutor and my buddy.
CS and music are, of course, a great combination. Over the years, I've had a number of strong and interesting students whose backgrounds included heavy doses of music, from alt rock to marching band to classical. But B.B. King is from a different universe. Maybe I can get this quote plastered on the walls of all the local haunts for musicians. I wonder what B.B. calls his laptop? -----
