B.B. King – Ghetto woman

How have so many people reported personally meeting B.B. King? I find a lot of folks who claim to have met him, did he go on a damn cross country tour with an aim to meet as many regular folks as he possibly could? LOL! I just think it’s a bit strange.Indeed, everyone would remember meeting him. Well how is it not relevant you toss pot? Should I have posted this in the. pregnancy section? lol.Henry that’s so true about the smaller venues, I didn’t think of that.

Nah, we meet ALL SORTS of people everyday. Perofrmers like him more than anyone else.We forget most of the people we meet in a day (and they forget us).Quite a LOT of people would remember meeting B.B.King.My nephew works on his tour bus from time to time (but neither he nor I have met him)

Well I seen him many times over the yearsBecause he tours alot . He is in is 80`s and still going strong.He proably meets alot of people because he is veryaccessible. He is very gracious and loves to talk to people.All through the 80`s you could see him play a club and just walk right up to him.

He’s a Mississippian. He was very approachable the last time I saw him play. I’ve met a lot of other bluesmen and women the same way. They’re generally very nice people; they know they have to get along with their market.Quite different from taking on airs of royalty as in the rock, pop and hip hop world.

In his bio, he says that he agrees to meet everyone that comes to his dressing room. More than any other celebrity would.

B.B. has played for half a century with many of those years playing 250-300 shows a year. You just meet a lot of people that way!

MP, Conchobor, and Corrosion all have great answers. MP in particular stole the words out of my mouth (off my fingers. B.B. was the hardest working man in showbiz (apologies to James Brown). He played in excess of 300 dates a year for decades! That’s a lot of shows, and as Corrosion said-most “roots” musicians (i.e. blues, folk, country, etc.) are very approachable. I’ve met B.B. several times-twice at the Long Beach Blues Festival, once at a party, and once at a club date. A friendly, personable gentleman.

He’s in his 80s and has always toured like a working musician, not a rock star. He mostly playing small clubs and he isn’t a tool to his fans, recognizing that 500 fnas are still 500 fans.It isn’t that surprising that many people have met him.

Funny you should mention this, because I know someone who claims to have met him as a waitress. She said he was a jerk. I take leave to doubt it.

He plays in my town almost every year and after his shows he stays around to meet people. So that would equal a few hundred just where I live that have met him.

In addition to playing all over the place he also owns night clubs in Memphis, Nashville, Orlando and New York City, many people have met him at his clubs.bbkingclubs.com/bbkingblues.com/

B B is also like a thousand years old, you know he’s been on the road since there were horse-drawn carriages. lawd-a-mercy the man has met alot of folks. If youd’ been playing clubs and bigger halls for 50 years at something like 200+ nights a year, you’d have met an awful lotta folks too. And if you were as memorable a character as BB King, you’d leave an impression with mosta the folks you met. It adds up after a while. The man with the most friends never dies. BB is Immortal for sure.

B.B. King & Lucille why does he call his guitar by this name?10 points to correct answer? B.B. King king of the blues do you know why he calls his guitar lucille? 10 points for the correct answer
One cold night in 1949, two men started fighting and knocked over the barrel of burning kerosene. The burning fuel spilled over the floor like a river of fire. Every one, including B.B., ran out the front door. Once outside, B.B. realized that he left his guitar, a Gibson acoustic, inside the inferno. He went back inside the collapsing building to save his guitar, almost losing his life in the process. The blaze that night claimed two fatalities. The next morning, B.B. discovered why the two men were fighting the night before. It seems as though they were fighting over a lady, and although he never met the woman, B.B. learned her name was Lucille. B.B. named that guitar Lucille, and also every guitar he has owned since that night, “to remind me never to do a thing like that again.”

Back in the late 1940’s when B.B.’s career was in its infancy, one of his stops on the road was in Twist, Arkansas. It used to get quite cold in Twist in the evenings, and in order to keep the dance hall warm, kerosene was used for heat. A large barrel was placed in the center of the room and was filled about half way up with the fuel. The kerosene was then lighted to heat the room, a practice which was not uncommon in those days.One cold night in 1949, two men started fighting and knocked over the barrel of burning kerosene.

two men got into a fight at one of his concerts and knocked over a stove, setting fire to the hall. when B.B. realised he had left his guitar inside he ran back in to rescue it. he found out later that the men had been fighting over a woman called Lucille. so after that he called his guitars Lucille to remind him how dumb it was to have run back into that burning hall.
