B.B. King Plays “The Thrill is Gone” with Slash, Ron Wood & Other Legends

How many generations of guitarists have come and gone since B.B. King emerged on the Beale Street blues scene in the late 1940s? 60s blues-rock giants, 70s hard rockers, 80s metal shredders… at least two generations between B.B. and Slash, who is probably himself a guitar grandfather by now. Whether they know it or not, every rock and blues player descends from the Kings of the blues (B.B., Albert, Freddie, and guitarists who bore the title but not the surname). Slash knows it well. ...

A medical student learns to listen with her hands

In my first quarter of medical school, we learned the pulmonary exam.  We were told to watch the patient’s breathing, feel for any asymmetries, use our hands to gauge resonance and listen to all lung fields with our stethoscopes. It didn’t seem too difficult. Our instructor demonstrated the exam on one of my classmates, and […] Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com. Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.
