one of the last of the living legends of the blues.by the way, doghouse, b.b. king used to play about once a year at beef and boards. did you ever see him play there?(fyi for you out of towners -- beef and boards is a dinner theater in indianapolis.)
Man, he got a lot of cosmetic surgery for Lucille over the years.
Nah, I never saw him, Harry. I do remember the days when Beef & Boards was a viable music venue, I just never went.And I don't know where my wife stashes her old copies of Smithsonian or I might be able tell for sure from the larger picture, but it looks like he's playing a Gibson L-00 from the early 30s with a pickup added below the sound hole. A cheap guitar in those days, but a really good one, though a little delicate for the rigors of the road carried in a cardboard case. Maybe that wsa just his paintin'-on guitar.
thanks for the answer, doghouse.
