    Does anyone know anything about Val Patillo, the guy who backed up BB King on the live version of Live and Well? I always liked his playing on that album and I mentioned him to a bass player friend recently. But I have never been able to find out anything more about the guy.

    Hi John,

    I am the late Val P. Patillo's daughter. Val played baass for BB King in the late 60's and 70's. He ended his music career to marry and raise 3 children. He was a retired bus driver when he died 5/29/09.
