B.B. King loves his Lucille Gibson guitar. "It seems that it loves to be petted and played with. There's also a certain way you hold it, the certain noises it makes, the way it excites me ... and Lucille don't want to play anything but the blues ... Lucille is real, when I play her it's almost like hearing words, and of course, naturally I hear cries." — B.B. King, liner notes from the album, Lucille, 1968. B.B. King, 83, has played 15,000 shows in the last 50 years, and is known for his hits“Thrill Is Gone” and “Every Day I Have the Blues." Buddy Guy is known for his showmanship: for example, he plays his guitar with drumsticks, or strolls into the audience while jamming and trailing a long guitar cord.
