Tune in Friday and Monday nights as we pay tribute to the life and legacy of legendary blues guitarist B.B. King, who has passed away at the age of 89. We last spoke with B.B. in 2013 for a two-part conversation about his life and extraordinary career. We covered everything from his young days picking cotton to how he became hailed as the "King of the Blues."
In the clip below, B.B. tells the famous story of how he named his guitar "Lucille."
