Tito Jackson announced that he is teaming up with B.B. King's blues band. He made the announcement at the Withers Collection Museum and Gallery on Beale Street. They will be going on a major world tour together after spending time in Memphis to rehearse. Tito says he's a blues man at heart and has always idolized B.B. King. “I've always been a blues player, ever since the day I picked up the guitar, I guess,” says Tito Jackson. Also following in the footsteps of B.B. King, Tito says he plans to name his specially made Gibson guitar after someone close to him. His guitar will carry the name "Katie," which is what most people call his mother.
