B.B. King - The king of urban blues, B.B. King occasionally played the Bottom Line in New York's West Village. My photo editor gave me this assignment: "Make sure you get B.B. with Lucille."  Having never seen B.B., I wasn't sure who Lucille was.  When "she" still had not appeared halfway through the show, I asked a fan in the audience, "When does Lucille usually come on?" He laughed and said, "He's been holding her all night."  Lucille, of course, is B.B.'s signature electric guitar.
