RIP B.B. King - the story of Lucille

Hi guys

To celebrate the passing of the great B.B. King I thought I'd share this B.B. style backing track, which also tells the story of how his famous Lucille guitar got her name...

Rest in Peace maestro.

Happy jamming folks....

It's been awhile since I checked in over here--don't know how that happened!

Thanks for posting the Lucille story--I've heard it before but sure didn't remember it.

RIP, Blues Boy.

I'm about the same. But somehow my week turned into a month last time. Oh well, ...
Maybe the Phoenix will rise from the Ashes one of these weeks.
