Editorial Reviews

B.B. King grew up a sharecropper's son in the Mississippi Delta, picked cotton on a plantation, lost his mother when he was 9 years old, and lived alone until he was 14. In rural Mississippi during the 1920s, '30s and '40s - it was not a great place to be as a young black man. It was a place where you had bathrooms for "whites" and bathrooms for "coloreds," and if there was no bathroom for coloreds, you just had to wait. He bought his first guitar for $15 -- a whole month's salary -- and started playing it, sitting on the sidewalk in town, to earn a few dollars. B.B. talks with Ted Koppel about "Lucille," his famous guitar and how it got that name, New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and he also tells the story behind his famous initials, and explains why and how he developed that famous "vibrato" sound. Anchor: Ted Koppel.
