3 'American Masters' music films on PBS celebrate B.B. King, Fats Domino and Carole King

The PBS culture-hero series "American Masters," a collection of works that should be on every feeling person's personal syllabus, has three new music-related films this month, featuring B.B. King, Fats Domino and Carole King.

The first two of these films are being promoted as Black History Month programming, though you can hardly look at American music without looking at black history (even when you're looking at Carole King, a nice Jewish girl from Brooklyn whose songs were recorded by the Drifters, the Shirelles and Aretha Franklin).

Amazingly, Bono appears in only one of them.
