B.B. King und seine Gitarre "Lucille" zu Besuch im Beat Club am 09.03.1968!

B.B. King, born as Riley Ben King in 1925, is still one of the most influential blues guitarists of modern music - and also one of the most respected. Kings musical career goes back to the 40s as he arrived for the first time in Memphis - with only poor results. But in the 50s he already became an important name in blues music with a large list of hits in the R&B charts. At the end of the 60s he also entered the pop charts with his songs (e.g. # 15 with "The Thrill Is Gone"). He always named his trademark Gibson Guitars "Lucille" after an incident in the mid 50s: King saved his beloved acoustic guitar from a fire at a concert hall in Twist, Arkansas. Later he heard that two men got into a fight about a girl called Lucille and accidentally set fire to the hall. So he decided to give the girls name to his guitar to remind him never to do such crazy things - like go back into a burning building or fight over a woman!
