The story of Lucille

I’ve never heard of it before but when an expat-friend, who is a local band-member, mentioned about how he’d love to get a gibson lucille for Christmas caught my ears. It made me wonder who – or what – it is!

I’m not really a musically-inclined person so please excuse my ignorance. My friend – who considered it a sacrilege that I didn’t know Lucille – then lectured me about it. Turns out it’s not a name of a person but a guitar named “Lucille”. The legendary blues musician B.B. King had the original Lucille and together they made music history. But, oh, how they all laughed at my expense and every time this subject crops up, I cringe! At least I learned something new.
