Janet Buster understood things would somehow never be the same for her son after that night last fall at the Universal Amphitheatre. She and 9-year-old Brody had been given backstage passes to a concert by blues guitar master B. B. King, and the two found a spot at the side of the stage, hoping for a chance to say hello again to King when the show ended. That's when King saw the boy, raised his hand to stop the concert, and directed the spotlight to suddenly fall on young Brody.

The fledgling blues harmonica player is spending the summer at what his mother calls "Blues Camp 101," sharing a stage whenever he can with the big boys on Beale Street--and at B.B.
