GALVESTON, Texas - B.B. King was hospitalized for undisclosed reasons but was in good condition early Friday, a hospital official said.
The 81-year-old bluesman, who had been scheduled to perform at the Grand Opera House on Thursday night, was admitted to The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, said Paul McCarthy, a nurse administrator.

McCarthy said King was not in the intensive care unit and that he could be released later Friday or Saturday.

A message left with King's management agency, Lieberman Management LLC of New York, was not immediately returned early Friday.

With his trademark guitar that he named "Lucille," King racked up hits including "The Thrill is Gone," "Every Day I Have the Blues" and "You Upset me Baby."

Born on a plantation in Itta Bena, Miss., King started out on street corners playing for pocket change, according to his Web site. He went on to become one of the nation's most influential blues musicians.

In December, President Bush awarded King the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his musical contributions.

It sounds like it's not serious, but good thoughts his way.

According to his office, it was the flu, and he should be fine today.

We tried to get tickets to that but it was sold out (even the seats behind the pillars, damn it).

We're seeing Willie Nelson there next month instead. Will have to catch B.B. later.

B.B.King is diabetic. At his age the flu can be serious. Hope he is well soon.
