B.B. King Released From Texas Hospital

Blues legend B-B King today was discharged from a Galveston hospital after being treated for a fever. A spokeswoman for the 81-year-old musician said King was -- quote -- "back to his old self."

King was admitted Thursday, shortly before he was scheduled to perform at the city's Grand Opera House.

Tina France, King's spokeswoman, said the guitar legend had a 100-point-four degree fever when he was hospitalized. King had just battled through a bout with the flu.

King is still scheduled to perform in Fort Worth on Tuesday.

But his concerts in Galveston, Orange and Tyler will be rescheduled for June.

King is one of the nation's most influential and best-known blues musicians. His long list of hits includes "The Thrill is Gone," "Every Day I Have the Blues" and "You Upset Me Baby."
