Last week, the rock-and-roll pioneer, Friend of Bruce, and Long Island resident Gary U.S. Bonds celebrated his seventy-fifth birthday at the B. B. King Blues Club & Grill. Bonds is a jocular presence, and grateful, in his eighth decade, to be enjoying a career onstage. He's had a birthday concert at the club for the past six years; last year's, his seventy-fourth, was a big to-do. It doubled as a party for the release of his memoir, "By U.S. Bonds," and featured performances by his original saxophone player, Gene (Daddy G.) Barge, who is eighty-seven; the beloved Jersey misanthrope Southside Johnny ("A man I hate to call my friend, but I have to, because he's a dear friend," Bonds said); and Chubby Checker, who sat on a stool and gave the band orders: "Can we punk up the bass? Rock the drums? I want to hear some Chuck Berry guitar, some Jerry Lee Lewis piano, I want the sax player to bubble under on the arrangement, E two-three bop-bam, and stick in a load of Fats Domino."

"Gary U.S. Bonds began his career during the formative years of Rock and Roll and his influence continues to this day. From his beginning days touring with Sam Cooke and B.B. King to his close working relationship with Bruce Springsteen, Gary has entertained millions around the world with his music. With his autobiography, By U.S. Bonds, we get an inside look at the music and the man."

Gary U.S. Bonds appeared on Good Day New York (Fox TV) June 5, 2013. He talked about his book, the new single and the Birthday Bash Celebration at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill later that night.
