Bow down to the King of the Blues.

Throughout B.B. King’s fifty-year career of new influences, collaboration and incessant touring, the blues have been his home. He came up in a time of racial divide, uniting us with music that served as a reminder—we all have the blues.

Michael Hill

Riley “B. B.” King has often been called the King of the Blues, but given his wide-ranging and long-lasting influence, he might more accurately be described as the blues’ lifetime ambassador. 

He has brought the sound and the style across the U.S.A. and all the way to the U.S.S.R., to Caesar’s Palace and the Cook County Jail, to the Newport Jazz Festival and the Fillmore East.

He topped the rhythm and blues charts in the early Fifties, served as an inspiration to the blues-obsessed guitarists of the Sixties and reached a mainstream audience, as well as the pop Top Twenty, with his elegant and  soulful “The Thrill Is Gone.”

Whose contribution to culture and music, is enormous. The thrill has not gone.

悪い口コミ

 

 

サイズ見て買ったのに、全体的にぶかぶかで最悪です。

 

このような商品は、寄せる肉がある人や元から大きい人にしか意味が無いような気がします。

 

本当にバストアップを求めてる私のようなガリガリ貧乳には無意味です。

 

本当に求めてる人達の為に作ってもらいたいですね。。悩んで悩んで買ったのにこの商品とは縁が無し。


 

 

粗悪品でガッカリです。評価が低い口コミがかなりあり、納得です。

 

片方のパットが潰れてる。ネットに入れ手洗いモードでの洗濯したのにレースがほつれた。肩紐に当たるバイヤス部分もほつれてきていた。

 

着用する時に下から履くのでパットがズレる。脇寄せ力はあるが、潰している感覚もある。脇の縫い目がとても痛い。

 

縫製の面からも、敏感肌の方にはオススメしません。


 

この様に、そもそも胸が小さい人には向いていない。また、そもそも商品としても機能を果たしていない。などの口コミが見られました。

 

総じて言える事は、正規販売店で購入していない類似品を購入された方は、本来の機能を体感出来ずに結局はお金を無駄にしている方がいらっしゃると思います。

 

正規店は初期不良があれば好感可能です。amazonや楽天は正規店で無い場合がありますので注意が必要ですね。

B.B. King

American blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter (1925–2015)

Musical artist

Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. He introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato and staccatopicking that influenced many later blueselectric guitar players.[5][6]AllMusic recognized King as "the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century".[6]

King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and is one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname "The King of the Blues", and is considered one of the "Three Kings of the Blues Guitar" (along with Albert King and Freddie King, none of whom are related).[7][8][9] King performed tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing on average at more than 200 concerts per year into his 70s.[10] In 1956 alone, he appeared at 342 shows.[11]

King was born on a cotton plantation in Itta Bena, Mississippi, and later worked at a cotton gin in Indianola, Mississippi. He was attracted to music and the guitar in church, and began his career in juke joints and local radio. He later lived in Memphis, Tennessee and Chicago, and as his fame grew, toured the world extensively. King died at the age of 89 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 14, 2015.

Early life[edit]

Riley B. King was born on September 16, 1925,[12] on the Berclair cotton plantation near the town of Itta Bena, Mississippi,[6][13] the son of sharecroppers Albert and Nora Ella King.[13] He considered the nearby city of Indianola, Mississippi to be his home.[14] When King was four years old, his mother left his father for another man, so he was raised by his maternal grandmother, Elnora Farr, in Kilmichael, Mississippi.[13]

While young, King sang in the gospel choir at Elkhorn Baptist Church in Kilmichael. King was attracted to the PentecostalChurch of God in Christ because of its music. The local minister performed with a Sears Roebuck Silvertone guitar during services. The minister taught King his first three chords.[15] It seems that at the age of 12 he purchased his first guitar for $15.00,[16][13] although another source indicates he was given his first guitar by Bukka White, his mother's first cousin (King's grandmother and White's mother were sisters).[17]

In November 1941, "King Biscuit Time" first aired, broadcasting on KFFA in Helena, Arkansas. It was a radio show featuring the Mississippi Delta blues. King listened to it while on break at a plantation. A self-taught guitarist, he then wanted to become a radio musician.[18]

In 1943, King left Kilmichael to work as a tractor driver and play guitar with the Famous St. John's Gospel Singers of Inverness, Mississippi, performing at area churches and on WGRM in Greenwood, Mississippi.[19][20]

In 1946, King followed Bukka White to Memphis, Tennessee. White took him in for the next ten months.[13] However, King returned to Mississippi shortly afterward, where he decided to prepare himself better for the next visit, and returned to West Memphis, Arkansas, two years later in 1948. He performed on Sonny Boy Williamson's radio program on KWEM in West Memphis, where he began to develop an audience. King's appearances led to steady engagements at the Sixteenth Avenue Grill in West Memphis, and later to a ten-minute spot on the Memphis radio station WDIA.[21] The radio spot became so popular that it was expanded and became the Sepia Swing Club.[22]

He worked at WDIA as a singer and disc jockey, where he was given the nickname "Beale Street Blues Boy", later shortened to "Blues Boy", and finally to B.B.[23][24][25] It was there that he first met T-Bone Walker. King said, "Once I'd heard him for the first time, I knew I'd have to have [an electric guitar] myself. 'Had' to have one, short of stealing!"[26]

Career[edit]

1949–2005[edit]

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, King was a part of the blues scene on Beale Street. "Beale Street was where it all started for me," King said. He performed with Bobby Bland, Johnny Ace and Earl Forest in a group known as the Beale Streeters.[27]

According to King and Joe Bihari, Ike Turner introduced King to the Bihari brothers while he was a talent scout at Modern Records.[28][17] In 1949, King began recording songs under contract with Los Angeles-based RPM Records, a subsidiary of Modern. Many of King's early recordings were produced by Sam Phillips, who later founded Sun Records. Before his RPM contract, King had debuted on Bullet Records by issuing the single, "Miss Martha King" (1949), which did not chart well. "My very first recordings [in 1949] were[sic] for a company out of Nashville called Bullet, the Bullet Record Transcription company," King recalled. "I had horns that very first session. I had Phineas Newborn on piano; his father played drums, and his brother, Calvin, played guitar with me. I had Tuff Green on bass, Ben Branch on tenor sax, his brother, Thomas, on trumpet, and a lady trombone player. The Newborn family were the house band at the famous Plantation Inn in West Memphis."[29]

King assembled his own band; the B.B. King Review, under the leadership of Millard Lee. The band initially consisted of Calvin Owens and Kenneth Sands (trumpet), Lawrence Burdin (alto saxophone), George Coleman (tenor saxophone),[30]Floyd Newman (baritone saxophone), Millard Lee (piano), George Joyner (bass) and Earl Forest and Ted Curry (drums). Onzie Horne was a trained musician enlisted as an arranger to assist King with his compositions. By his own admission, King could not play chords well and always relied on improvisation.[31]

King's recording contract was followed by tours across the United States, with performances in major theatres in cities such as Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, and St. Louis, as well as numerous gigs in small clubs and juke joints of the southern United States. During one show in Twist, Arkansas, a brawl broke out between two men and caused a fire. He evacuated along with the rest of the crowd but went back to retrieve his guitar. He said he later found out that the two men were fighting over a woman named Lucille. He named the guitar Lucille, as a reminder not to fight over women or run into any more burning buildings.[32]

The story of a guitar named Lucille

Following his first BillboardRhythm and Blues charted number one, "3 O'Clock Blues" (February 1952),[33] B.B. King became one of the most important names in R&B music in the 1950s, amassing an impressive list of hits[25] including "You Know I Love You", "Woke Up This Morning", "Please Love Me", "When My Heart Beats like a Hammer", "Whole Lotta Love", "You Upset Me Baby", "Every Day I Have the Blues", "Sneakin' Around", "Ten Long Years", "Bad Luck", "Sweet Little Angel", "On My Word of Honor", and "Please Accept My Love". This led to a significant increase in his weekly earnings, from about $85 to $2,500,[34][35] with appearances at major venues such as the Howard Theater in Washington and the Apollo in New York, as well as touring the "Chitlin' Circuit". 1956 became a record-breaking year, with 342 concerts booked and three recording sessions.[36] That same year he founded his own record label, Blues Boys Kingdom, with headquarters at Beale Street in Memphis. There, among other projects, he was a producer for artists such as Millard Lee and Levi Seabury.[14] In 1962, King signed to ABC-Paramount Records, which was later absorbed into MCA Records (which itself was later absorbed into Geffen Records). In November 1964, King recorded the Live at the Regal album at the Regal Theater.[33] King later said that Regal Live "is considered by some the best recording I've ever had . . . that particular day in Chicago everything came together".[37]

From the late 1960s, new manager Sid Seidenberg pushed King into a different type of venue as blues-rock performers like Eric Clapton (once a member of The Yardbirds, as well as Cream), and Paul Butterfield were popularizing an appreciation of blues music among white audiences.[38] King gained further visibility among rock audiences as an opening act on the Rolling Stones' 1969 American Tour.[39] He won a 1970 Grammy Award for his version of the song "The Thrill Is Gone;"[40] which was a hit on both the Pop and R&B charts. It also gained the number 183 spot in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[41]

King was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1980, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and the National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame in 2014.[10][42] In 2004, he was awarded the international Polar Music Prize, given to artists "in recognition of exceptional achievements in the creation and advancement of music."[43]

From the 1980s to his death in 2015, he maintained a highly visible and active career, appearing on numerous television shows and sometimes performing 300 nights a year. In 1988, King reached a new generation of fans with the single "When Love Comes to Town," a collaborative effort between King and the Irish band U2 on their Rattle and Hum album.[33] In December 1997, he performed in the Vatican's fifth annual Christmas concert and presented his trademark guitar "Lucille" to Pope John Paul II.[44][45] In 1998, he appeared in The Blues Brothers 2000, playing the part of the lead singer of the Louisiana Gator Boys, along with Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Koko Taylor and Bo Diddley. In 2000, he and Clapton teamed up again to record Riding With the King, which won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album.[46]

Discussing where he took the Blues, from "dirt floor, smoke in the air" joints to grand concert halls, King said the Blues belonged everywhere beautiful music belonged. He successfully worked both sides of the commercial divide, with sophisticated recordings and "raw, raucous" live performance.[37]

2006–2014: Farewell tour and later activities[edit]

In 2006, King went on a "farewell" world tour, although he remained active afterward.[47] The tour was partly supported by Northern Irish guitarist, Gary Moore, with whom King had previously toured and recorded. It started in the United Kingdom, and continued with performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival and in Zürich at the Blues at Sunset. During his show in Montreux at the Stravinski Hall, he jammed with Joe Sample, Randy Crawford, David Sanborn, Gladys Knight, Leela James, Andre Beeka, Earl Thomas, Stanley Clarke, John McLaughlin, Barbara Hendricks and George Duke.[48]

In June 2006, King was present at a memorial of his first radio broadcast at the Three Deuces Building in Greenwood, Mississippi, where an official marker of the Mississippi Blues Trail was erected. The same month, a groundbreaking was held for a new museum, dedicated to King,[49] in Indianola, Mississippi.[50] The B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center opened on September 13, 2008.[51]

In late October 2006, King recorded a concert album and video entitled B.B. King: Live at his B.B. King Blues Clubs in Nashville and Memphis. The video of the four-night production featured his regular B.B. King Blues Band and captured his show as he performed it nightly around the world. Released in 2008, they documented his first live performances in over a decade.[52]

In 2007, King played at Eric Clapton's second Crossroads Guitar Festival[53] and contributed the songs "Goin' Home", to Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino (with Ivan Neville's DumpstaPhunk)[54] and "One Shoe Blues" to Sandra Boynton's children's album Blue Moo, accompanied by a pair of sock puppets in a music video for the song.[55]

In the summer of 2008, King played at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, where he was given a key to the city.[56] Also in 2008, he was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame.[57]

King performed at the Mawazine festival in Rabat, Morocco, on May 27, 2010.[58] In June 2010, King performed at the Crossroads Guitar Festival with Robert Cray, Jimmie Vaughan, and Eric Clapton.[59] He also contributed to Cyndi Lauper's album Memphis Blues, which was released on June 22, 2010.[60]

In 2011, King played at the Glastonbury Music Festival,[61] and in the Royal Albert Hall in London, where he recorded a concert video.[62]

Rolling Stone ranked King at No. 6 on its 2011 list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.[63]

On February 21, 2012, King was among the performers of "In Performance at the White House: Red, White and Blues," during which President Barack Obama sang part of "Sweet Home Chicago".[64] King recorded for the debut album of rapper and producer Big K.R.I.T., who also hails from Mississippi.[65] On July 5, 2012, King performed a concert at the Byblos International Festival in Lebanon.[66]

On May 26, 2013, King appeared at the New Orleans Jazz Festival.[67]

On October 3, 2014, after completing his live performance at the House of Blues in Chicago, a doctor diagnosed King with dehydration and exhaustion, and the eight remaining shows of his ongoing tour had to be cancelled. King did not reschedule the shows, and the House of Blues show would prove to be the last before his death in 2015.[68][69]

Equipment[edit]

For more information about King's guitar, see Lucille (guitar).

When I sing, I play in my mind; the minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing Lucille.[70]

B.B. King used equipment characteristic of the different periods he played in. He played guitars made by various manufacturers early in his career. He played a Fender Esquire on most of his recordings with RPM Records.[71] However, he was best known for playing variants of the Gibson ES-355.

In the September edition 1995 of Vintage Guitar magazine, early photos show him playing a Gibson ES-5 through a Fender tweed amp. In reference to the photo, B.B. King stated, "Yes; the old Fender amplifiers were the best that were ever made, in my opinion. They had a good sound and they were durable; guys would throw them in the truck and they’d hold up. They had tubes, and they’d get real hot, but they just had a sound that is hard to put into words. The Fender Twin was great, but I have an old Lab Series amp that isn’t being made anymore. I fell in love with it, because its sound is right between the old Fender amps that we used to have and the Fender Twin. It’s what I’m using tonight."[72]

He later moved on from the larger Gibson hollow-bodied instruments which were prone to feedback when played at high volumes to various semi-hollow models beginning first with the ES-335 and then a deluxe version called the ES-355 which employed a stereo option.[72] In 1980, Gibson Guitar Corporation launched the B.B. King Lucille model, a ES-355 with stereo options, a varitone selector and fine tuners (neither of which were actually utilized by B.B.) and, at King's direct request, no f-holes to further reduce feedback. In 2005, Gibson made a special run of 80 Gibson Lucilles, referred to as the "80th Birthday Lucille", the first prototype of which was given as a birthday gift to King, and which he used thereafter.[73]

King used a Lab Series L5 2×12" combo amplifier and used this amplifier for a long time. It was made by Norlin Industries for Gibson in the 1970s and 1980s. Other popular L5 users are Allan Holdsworth and Ty Tabor of King's X. The L5 has an onboard compressor, parametric equalization, and four inputs. King also used a Fender Twin Reverb.[74]

He used his signature model strings "Gibson SEG-BBS B.B. King Signature Electric Guitar Strings" with gauges: 10–13–17p–32w–45w–54w and D'Andrea 351 MD SHL CX (medium 0.71mm, tortoiseshell, celluloid) picks.[74]

B.B. King's Blues Club[edit]

In 1991, Beale Street developer John Elkington recruited B.B. King to Memphis to open the original B.B. King's Blues Club, and in 1994, a second club was launched at Universal Citywalk in Los Angeles. A third club in New York City's Times Square opened in June 2000 but closed on April 29, 2018. Management is currently in the process of finding a new location in New York City.[75] Two more clubs opened, at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut in January 2002,[76] and in Nashville in 2003.[77] Another club opened in Orlando in 2007.[78] A club in West Palm Beach opened in the fall of 2009[79] and an additional one, based in the Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas, opened in the winter of 2009.[80] Another opened in the New OrleansFrench Quarter in 2016.[81]

Television and other appearances[edit]

King made guest appearances in numerous popular television shows, including The Cosby Show, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Young and the Restless, General Hospital, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Sesame Street,[82]Married... with Children, Sanford and Son, and Touched by an Angel.

In 2000, the children's show Between the Lions featured a singing character named "B.B. the King of Beasts", modeled on the real King.[83]

B.B. King: The Life of Riley, a feature documentary about King narrated by Morgan Freeman and directed by Jon Brewer, was released on October 15, 2012.[84]

Commercials[edit]

King, who was diabetic, appeared in several television commercials for OneTouch Ultra, a blood glucose monitoring device, in the 2000s and early 2010s.[85] He appeared in 1995 in a McDonald's commercial with Australian guitarist Nathan Cavaleri, and then in a commercial for the Toyota Camry with his guitar Lucille.[86]

Personal life[edit]

Early publicity photo of B.B. King

King was married twice, to Martha Lee Denton, November 1946 to 1952, and to Sue Carol Hall, 1958 to 1966. The failure of both marriages has been attributed to the heavy demands made by King's 250 performances a year.[13][87] It is reported that he fathered 15 children with several different women.[13][12] After his death, three more have come forward, claiming King as their father as well.[88] Though neither of his marriages produced children, and biographer Charles Sawyer wrote that doctors found his sperm count too low to conceive children,[89] King never disputed paternity of any of the 15 who claimed it, and by all accounts was generous in bankrolling college tuitions and establishing trust funds.[88] In May 2016, the 11 surviving children initiated legal proceedings against King's appointed trustee over his estimated $30 million to $40 million estate. Several of them also went public with the allegation that King's business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, had fatally poisoned him. Autopsy results showed no evidence of poisoning. A defamation suit filed by Johnson against the accusing family members (including his own sister, Karen Williams) is pending. Other children have filed lawsuits targeting King's music estate, which remains in dispute.[88]

King was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1990.[90] He lived with diabetes for over 20 years, and was a high-profile spokesman in the fight against the disease.[48][91]

King was an FAA certified private pilot and learned to fly in 1963 at what was then Chicago Hammond Airport in Lansing, Illinois.[92][93] He frequently flew to gigs but in 1995 his insurance company and manager asked him to fly only with another certified pilot. As a result, he stopped flying around the age of 70.[94]

King's favorite singer was Frank Sinatra. In his autobiography he spoke about how he was a "Sinatra nut" and how he went to bed every night listening to Sinatra's classic album In the Wee Small Hours. During the 1960s Sinatra had arranged for King to play at the main clubs in Las Vegas. He credited Sinatra for opening doors to black entertainers who were not given the chance to play in "white-dominated" venues.[95]

B.B. King was among hundreds of artists whose recordings were reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire.[96]

Philanthropy and notable campaigns[edit]

In September 1970, King recorded Live in Cook County Jail, during a time in which issues of race[97] and class in the prison system were prominent in politics. King also co-founded the Foundation for the Advancement of Inmate Rehabilitation and Recreation, tying in his support for prisoners and interest in prison reform.[97] In addition to prison reform, King also wanted to utilize prison performances as a way to preserve music and songs in a similar way that Alan Lomax did.[98]

In 2002, King signed on as an official supporter of Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit organization that provides free musical instruments and instruction to children in underprivileged public schools throughout the United States. He sat on the organization's Honorary Board of Directors.[99]

In the 2000s to early 2010s, King[90] was also involved in a diabetes awareness campaign with American Idol contestant, Crystal Bowersox, with One Touch Ultra, starring in commercials promoting diabetes health management.[100][101]

Death and funeral[edit]

The last eight shows of his 2014 tour were cancelled because of health problems caused by complications from high blood pressure and diabetes.[69][102][103] King died in his sleep on May 14, 2015, at the age of 89,[18] from vascular dementia caused by a series of small strokes as a consequence of his type 2 diabetes.[104] Two of his daughters alleged that King was deliberately poisoned by two associates trying to induce diabetic shock,[105] however an autopsy showed no evidence of poisoning.[102][106]

On May 27, 2015, King's body was flown to Memphis. A funeral procession went down Beale Street, with a brass band marching in front of the hearse, playing "When the Saints Go Marching In." Thousands lined the streets to pay their last respects. His body was then driven down Route 61 to his hometown of Indianola, Mississippi.[107] He was laid in repose at the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center, in Indianola, for people to view his open casket.[108][109] The funeral took place at the Bell Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Indianola, on May 30.[110][111][112] He was buried at the B.B. King Museum.[109]

サイズ見て買ったのに、全体的にぶかぶかで最悪です。

 

このような商品は、寄せる肉がある人や元から大きい人にしか意味が無いような気がします。

 

本当にバストアップを求めてる私のようなガリガリ貧乳には無意味です。

 

本当に求めてる人達の為に作ってもらいたいですね。。悩んで悩んで買ったのにこの商品とは縁が無し。


 

 

粗悪品でガッカリです。評価が低い口コミがかなりあり、納得です。

 

片方のパットが潰れてる。ネットに入れ手洗いモードでの洗濯したのにレースがほつれた。肩紐に当たるバイヤス部分もほつれてきていた。

 

着用する時に下から履くのでパットがズレる。脇寄せ力はあるが、潰している感覚もある。脇の縫い目がとても痛い。

 

縫製の面からも、敏感肌の方にはオススメしません。


 

この様に、そもそも胸が小さい人には向いていない。また、そもそも商品としても機能を果たしていない。などの口コミが見られました。

 

総じて言える事は、正規販売店で購入していない類似品を購入された方は、本来の機能を体感出来ずに結局はお金を無駄にしている方がいらっしゃると思います。

B.B. King

American blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter (1925–2015)

Musical artist

Riley B. King (September 16, 1925 – May 14, 2015), known professionally as B.B. King, was an American blues singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer. He introduced a sophisticated style of soloing based on fluid string bending, shimmering vibrato and staccatopicking that influenced many later blueselectric guitar players.[5][6]AllMusic recognized King as "the single most important electric guitarist of the last half of the 20th century".[6]

King was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and is one of the most influential blues musicians of all time, earning the nickname "The King of the Blues", and is considered one of the "Three Kings of the Blues Guitar" (along with Albert King and Freddie King, none of whom are related).[7][8][9] King performed tirelessly throughout his musical career, appearing on average at more than 200 concerts per year into his 70s.[10] In 1956 alone, he appeared at 342 shows.[11]

King was born on a cotton plantation in Itta Bena, Mississippi, and later worked at a cotton gin in Indianola, Mississippi. He was attracted to music and the guitar in church, and began his career in juke joints and local radio. He later lived in Memphis, Tennessee and Chicago, and as his fame grew, toured the world extensively. King died at the age of 89 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 14, 2015.

Early life[edit]

Riley B. King was born on September 16, 1925,[12] on the Berclair cotton plantation near the town of Itta Bena, Mississippi,[6][13] the son of sharecroppers Albert and Nora Ella King.[13] He considered the nearby city of Indianola, Mississippi to be his home.[14] When King was four years old, his mother left his father for another man, so he was raised by his maternal grandmother, Elnora Farr, in Kilmichael, Mississippi.[13]

While young, King sang in the gospel choir at Elkhorn Baptist Church in Kilmichael. King was attracted to the PentecostalChurch of God in Christ because of its music. The local minister performed with a Sears Roebuck Silvertone guitar during services. The minister taught King his first three chords.[15] It seems that at the age of 12 he purchased his first guitar for $15.00,[16][13] although another source indicates he was given his first guitar by Bukka White, his mother's first cousin (King's grandmother and White's mother were sisters).[17]

In November 1941, "King Biscuit Time" first aired, broadcasting on KFFA in Helena, Arkansas. It was a radio show featuring the Mississippi Delta blues. King listened to it while on break at a plantation. A self-taught guitarist, he then wanted to become a radio musician.[18]

In 1943, King left Kilmichael to work as a tractor driver and play guitar with the Famous St. John's Gospel Singers of Inverness, Mississippi, performing at area churches and on WGRM in Greenwood, Mississippi.[19][20]

In 1946, King followed Bukka White to Memphis, Tennessee. White took him in for the next ten months.[13] However, King returned to Mississippi shortly afterward, where he decided to prepare himself better for the next visit, and returned to West Memphis, Arkansas, two years later in 1948. He performed on Sonny Boy Williamson's radio program on KWEM in West Memphis, where he began to develop an audience. King's appearances led to steady engagements at the Sixteenth Avenue Grill in West Memphis, and later to a ten-minute spot on the Memphis radio station WDIA.[21] The radio spot became so popular that it was expanded and became the Sepia Swing Club.[22]

He worked at WDIA as a singer and disc jockey, where he was given the nickname "Beale Street Blues Boy", later shortened to "Blues Boy", and finally to B.B.[23][24][25] It was there that he first met T-Bone Walker. King said, "Once I'd heard him for the first time, I knew I'd have to have [an electric guitar] myself. 'Had' to have one, short of stealing!"[26]

Career[edit]

1949–2005[edit]

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, King was a part of the blues scene on Bbkings com Street. "Beale Street was where it all started for me," King said. He performed with Bobby Bland, Johnny Ace and Earl Forest in a group known as the Beale Streeters.[27]

According to King and Joe Bihari, Ike Turner introduced King to the Bihari brothers while he was a talent scout at Modern Records.[28][17] In 1949, King began recording songs under contract with Los Angeles-based RPM Records, a subsidiary of Modern. Many of King's early recordings were produced by Sam Phillips, who later founded Sun Records. Before his RPM contract, King had debuted on Bullet Records by issuing the single, "Miss Martha King" (1949), which did not chart well. "My very first recordings [in 1949] were[sic] for a company out of Nashville called Bullet, the Bullet Record Transcription company," King recalled. "I had horns that very first session. I had Phineas Newborn on piano; his father played drums, and his brother, Calvin, played guitar with me. I had Tuff Green on bass, Ben Branch on tenor sax, his brother, Thomas, on trumpet, and a lady trombone player. The Newborn family were the house band at the famous Plantation Inn in West Memphis."[29]

King assembled his own band; the B.B. King Review, under the leadership of Millard Lee. The band initially consisted of Calvin Owens and Kenneth Sands (trumpet), Lawrence Burdin (alto saxophone), George Coleman (tenor saxophone),[30]Floyd Newman (baritone saxophone), Millard Lee (piano), George Joyner (bass) and Earl Forest and Ted Curry (drums). Onzie Horne was a trained musician enlisted as an arranger to assist King with his compositions. By his own admission, King could not play chords well and always relied on improvisation.[31]

King's recording contract was followed by tours across the United States, with performances in major theatres in cities such as Washington, D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, and St. Louis, as well as numerous gigs in small clubs and juke joints of the southern United States. During one show in Twist, Arkansas, a brawl broke out between two men and caused a fire. He evacuated along with the rest of the crowd but went back to retrieve his guitar. He said he later found out that the two men were fighting over a woman named Lucille. He named the guitar Lucille, as a reminder not to fight over women or run into any more burning buildings.[32]

The story of a guitar named Lucille

Following his first BillboardRhythm and Blues charted number one, "3 O'Clock Blues" (February 1952),[33] B.B. King became one of the most important names in R&B music in the 1950s, amassing an impressive list of hits[25] including "You Know I Love You", "Woke Up This Morning", "Please Love Me", "When My Heart Beats like a Hammer", "Whole Lotta Love", "You Upset Me Baby", "Every Day I Have the Blues", "Sneakin' Around", "Ten Long Years", "Bad Luck", "Sweet Little Angel", "On My Word of Honor", and "Please Accept My Love". This led to a significant increase in his weekly earnings, from about $85 to $2,500,[34][35] with appearances at major venues such as the Howard Theater in Washington and the Apollo in New York, as well as touring the "Chitlin' Circuit". 1956 became a record-breaking year, with 342 concerts booked and three recording sessions.[36] That same year he founded his own record label, Blues Boys Kingdom, with headquarters at Beale Street in Memphis. There, among other projects, he was a producer for artists such as Millard Lee and Levi Seabury.[14] In 1962, King signed to ABC-Paramount Records, which was later absorbed into MCA Records is sugar free yogurt good for you itself was later absorbed into Geffen Records). In November 1964, King recorded the Live at the Regal album at the Regal Theater.[33] King later said that Regal Live "is considered by some the best recording I've ever had. . that particular day in Chicago everything came together".[37]

From the bbkings com 1960s, new manager Sid Seidenberg pushed King into a different type of venue as blues-rock performers like Eric Clapton (once a member of The Yardbirds, as well as Cream), and Paul Butterfield were popularizing an appreciation of blues music among white audiences.[38] King gained further visibility among rock audiences as an opening act best bank fishing spots near me the Rolling Stones' 1969 American Tour.[39] He won a 1970 Grammy Award for his version of the song "The Thrill Is Gone;"[40] which was a hit on both the Pop and R&B charts. It also gained the number 183 spot in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Pnc customer service number 1800 Songs of All Time.[41]

King was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1980, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, and the National Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame in 2014.[10][42] In 2004, he was awarded the international Polar Music Prize, given to artists "in recognition of exceptional achievements in the creation and advancement of music."[43]

From the 1980s to his death in 2015, he maintained a highly visible and active career, appearing on numerous television shows and sometimes performing 300 nights a year. In 1988, King reached a new generation of fans with bbkings com single "When Love Comes to Town," a collaborative effort between King and the Irish band U2 on their Rattle and Hum album.[33] In December 1997, he performed in the Vatican's fifth annual Christmas concert and presented his trademark guitar "Lucille" to Pope John Paul II.[44][45] In 1998, he appeared in The Blues Brothers 2000, playing the part of the lead singer of the Louisiana Gator Boys, along with Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Koko Taylor and Bo Diddley. In 2000, he and Clapton teamed up again to record Riding With the King, which won a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album.[46]

Discussing where he took the Blues, from "dirt floor, smoke in the air" joints to grand concert halls, King said the Blues belonged everywhere beautiful music belonged. He successfully worked both sides of the commercial divide, with sophisticated recordings and "raw, raucous" live performance.[37]

2006–2014: Farewell tour and later activities[edit]

In 2006, King went on a "farewell" world tour, although he remained active afterward.[47] The tour was partly supported by Northern Irish guitarist, Gary Moore, with whom King had previously toured and recorded. It started in the United Kingdom, and continued with performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival and in Zürich at the Blues at Sunset. During his show in Montreux at the Stravinski Hall, he jammed with Joe Sample, Randy Crawford, David Sanborn, Gladys Knight, Leela James, Andre Beeka, Earl Thomas, Stanley Clarke, John McLaughlin, Barbara Hendricks and George Duke.[48]

The same month, a groundbreaking was held for a new museum, dedicated to King,[49] in Indianola, Mississippi.[50] The B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center opened on September 13, 2008.[51]

In late October 2006, King recorded a concert album and video entitled B.B. King: Live at his B.B. King Blues Clubs in Nashville bbkings com Memphis.

Released in 2008, they documented his first live performances in over a decade.[52]

In 2007, King played at Eric Clapton's second Crossroads Guitar Festival[53] and contributed the songs "Goin' Home", to Goin' Home: A Tribute to Fats Domino (with Ivan Neville's DumpstaPhunk)[54] and "One Shoe Blues" to Sandra Boynton's children's album Blue Moo, accompanied by a pair of sock puppets in a music video for the song.[55]

King did not reschedule the shows, and the House of Blues show would prove to be the last before his death in 2015.[68][69]

Equipment[edit]

For more information about King's guitar, see Lucille (guitar).

When I sing, I play in my mind; the minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing Lucille.[70]

B.B. King used equipment characteristic of the different periods he played in. He played guitars made by various manufacturers early in his career. He played a Fender Esquire on most of his recordings with RPM Records.[71] However, he was best known for playing variants of the Gibson ES-355.

In the September edition 1995 of Vintage Guitar magazine, early photos show him playing a Gibson ES-5 through a Fender tweed amp. In reference to the photo, B.B. King stated, "Yes; the old Fender amplifiers were the best that were ever made, in my opinion. They had a good sound and they were durable; guys would throw them in the truck and they’d hold up. They had tubes, and they’d get real hot, but they just bank of america bankamericard credit limit a sound that is hard to put into words. The Fender Twin was great, but I have an old Lab Series amp that isn’t being made anymore. I fell in love with it, because its sound is right between the old Fender amps that we used to have and the Fender Twin. It’s what I’m using tonight."[72]

He later moved on from the larger Gibson hollow-bodied instruments which were prone to feedback when played at high volumes to various semi-hollow models beginning first with the ES-335 and then a deluxe version called the ES-355 which employed a stereo option.[72] In 1980, Gibson Guitar Corporation launched the B.B. King Lucille model, a ES-355 with stereo options, a varitone selector and fine tuners (neither of which were actually utilized by B.B.) and, at King's direct request, no f-holes to further reduce feedback. In 2005, Gibson made a special run of 80 Gibson Lucilles, referred to as the "80th Birthday Lucille", the first prototype of which was given as a birthday gift to King, and which he used thereafter.[73]

King used a Lab Series L5 2×12" combo amplifier and used this amplifier for a long time. It was made by Norlin Industries for Gibson in the 1970s and 1980s. Other popular L5 users are Allan Holdsworth and Ty Tabor of King's X. The L5 has an onboard compressor, parametric equalization, and four inputs. King also used a Fender Twin Reverb.[74]

He used his signature model strings "Gibson SEG-BBS B.B. King Signature Electric Guitar Strings" with gauges: 10–13–17p–32w–45w–54w and D'Andrea 351 MD SHL CX (medium 0.71mm, tortoiseshell, celluloid) picks.[74]

B.B. King's Blues Club[edit]

In 1991, Beale Street developer John Elkington recruited B.B. King to Memphis to open the original B.B. King's Blues Club, and in 1994, a second club was launched at Universal Citywalk in Los Angeles. A third club in New York City's Times Square opened in June 2000 but closed on April 29, 2018. Management is currently in the process of finding a new location in New York City.[75] Two more clubs opened, at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut in January 2002,[76] and in Nashville in 2003.[77] Another club opened in Orlando in 2007.[78] A club in West Palm Beach opened in the fall of 2009[79] and an additional one, based in the Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas, opened in the winter of 2009.[80] Another opened in the New OrleansFrench Quarter in 2016.[81]

Television and other appearances[edit]

King made guest appearances in numerous popular television shows, including The Cosby Show, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Young and the Restless, General Hospital, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Sesame Street,[82]Married. with Children, Sanford and Son, and Touched by an Angel.

In 2000, the children's show Between the Lions featured a singing character named "B.B. the King of Beasts", modeled on the real King.[83]

B.B. King: The Life of Riley, a feature documentary about King narrated by Morgan Freeman and directed by Jon Brewer, was released on October 15, 2012.[84]

Commercials[edit]

King, who was diabetic, appeared in several television commercials for OneTouch Ultra, a blood bbkings com monitoring device, in the 2000s and early 2010s.[85] He appeared in 1995 in a McDonald's commercial with Australian guitarist Nathan Cavaleri, and then in a commercial for the Toyota Camry with his guitar Lucille.[86]

Personal life[edit]

Early publicity photo of B.B. King

King was married twice, to Martha Lee Denton, November 1946 to 1952, and to Sue Carol Hall, 1958 to 1966. The failure of both marriages has been attributed to the heavy demands made by King's 250 performances a year.[13][87] It is reported that he fathered 15 children with several different women.[13][12] After his death, three more have come forward, claiming King as their father as well.[88] Though neither of his marriages produced children, and biographer Charles Sawyer wrote that doctors found his sperm count too low to conceive children,[89] King never disputed paternity of any of the 15 who claimed it, and by all accounts was generous in bankrolling college tuitions and establishing trust funds.[88] In May 2016, the 11 surviving children initiated legal proceedings against King's appointed trustee over his estimated $30 million to $40 million estate. Several of them also went public with the allegation that King's business manager, LaVerne Toney, and his personal assistant, Myron Johnson, had fatally poisoned him. Autopsy results showed no evidence of poisoning. A defamation suit filed by Johnson against the accusing family members (including his own sister, Karen Williams) is pending. Other children have filed lawsuits targeting King's music estate, which remains in dispute.[88]

King was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1990.[90] He lived with diabetes for over 20 years, and was a high-profile spokesman in the fight against the disease.[48][91]

King was an FAA certified private pilot and learned to fly in 1963 at what was then Chicago Hammond Airport in Lansing, Illinois.[92][93] He frequently flew to gigs but in 1995 his insurance company and manager asked him to fly only with another certified pilot. As a result, he stopped flying around the age of 70.[94]

King's favorite singer was Frank Sinatra. In his autobiography he spoke about how he was a "Sinatra nut" and how he went to bed every night listening to Sinatra's classic album In the Wee Small Hours. During the 1960s Sinatra had arranged for King to play at the main clubs in Las Vegas. He credited Sinatra for opening doors to black entertainers who were not given the chance to play in "white-dominated" venues.[95]

B.B. King was among hundreds of artists whose recordings were reportedly destroyed in the 2008 Universal fire.[96]

Philanthropy and notable campaigns[edit]

In September 1970, King recorded Live in Cook County Jail, during a time in which issues of race[97] and class in the prison system were prominent in politics. King also co-founded the Foundation for the Advancement of Inmate Rehabilitation and Recreation, tying in his support for prisoners and interest in prison reform.[97] In addition to prison reform, King also wanted to utilize prison performances as a way to preserve music and songs in a similar way that Alan Lomax did.[98]

In 2002, King signed on as an official supporter of Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit organization that provides free musical instruments and instruction to children in underprivileged public schools throughout the United States. He sat on the organization's Honorary Board of Directors.[99]

In the 2000s to early 2010s, King[90] was also involved in a diabetes awareness campaign with American Idol contestant, Crystal Bowersox, with One Touch Ultra, starring in commercials promoting diabetes health management.[100][101]

Death and funeral[edit]

The last eight shows of his 2014 tour were cancelled because of health problems caused by complications from high blood pressure and diabetes.[69][102][103] King died in his sleep on May 14, 2015, at the age of 89,[18] from vascular dementia caused by a series of small strokes as a consequence of his type 2 diabetes.[104] Two of his daughters alleged that King was deliberately poisoned by two associates trying to induce diabetic shock,[105] however an autopsy showed no evidence of poisoning.[102][106]

On May 27, 2015, King's body was flown to Memphis. A funeral procession went down Beale Street, with a brass band marching in front of the hearse, playing "When the Saints Go Marching In." Thousands lined the streets to pay their last respects. His body was then driven down Route 61 to his hometown of Indianola, Mississippi.[107] He was laid in repose at the B.B. King Bbkings com and Delta Interpretive Center, in Indianola, for people to view his open casket.[108][109] The funeral took place at the Bell Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Indianola, on May 30.[110][111][112] He was buried at the B.B. King Museum.[109]

B.B. King Blues Club in NYC Is Closing After 18 Years, Citing High Rent

B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in the heart of New York City's Times Square will shut its doors this month after 18 years in business, citing rising rents in the neighborhood it says it helped revive. Since opening in 2000 on West 42nd Street, the club named for the late blues icon has played host to Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Jay-Z and other influential acts.

The club said on Tuesday that its final show will take place on April 29 with blues  legend Buddy Guy. Rick Ross, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh  and George Clinton are also slated to perform in the venue's final weeks. A new location in Manhattan is being sought, but no other details were given.

"Despite many sold out shows, the [Times Square] location's rent escalated to an unsustainable level, leaving us no choice but to close our doors," said Tsion Bensusan of venue operator TSE Group. "Unfortunately this has become a growing trend in New York City, with other iconic music venues and businesses falling victim to opportunistic property owners. This venue’s legacy extends much further than the stage, playing a role in Times Square’s revitalization two decades ago. It is a shame that wasn’t taken into consideration regarding its future in the area."

The B.B. King Blues Club & Grill is now independent from the B.B. King's Blues Club chain, which launched in 1991 on Beale Street in Memphis and currently has locations in Nashville, Orlando, New Orleans and Montgomery, Ala.

King died in May of 2015.

B.B. King Blues Club & Grill Closing Week Celebration Show Schedule:

April 17 & 18: Buddy Guy
April 22: William Bell's Memphis Soul Revue 
April 23: Rick Ross 
April 25: Slick Rick & Doug E. Fresh + Special Guests 
April 26: El Gran Combo
April 28: George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic + Special Guests 
April 29: Buddy Guy

Reviews

Kitchen Supervisor/Cook in Montgomery, AL

BB King's Management

I started here when the restaurant opened up working BOH and the job was ok, but the management is sad. The Chef was sexiest when it came to advancement. After the first Chef was fired, I then got an opportunity to advance, all the way to kitchen supervisor, but then when the checks started bouncing I looked for something different and part time. Then when the first Chef that left came back, it was like my work was no good because I am a woman. The Chefs are very bias when it comes to their workers. if you're a female you won't make it as a career here

Really horrible place to work. Do not care about their employees, only their money and are rude to customers as well. Do not work here for anything.

Great company to work.

I love working with this company. I am a part of the house band and I love coming to work. I get to meet new people, and help people have a good time.

Prep Cook in Montgomery, AL

Horrible place to work

It started off good, but it ended horribly. The management team shows favoritism. They hire people who can’t cook and then blames the ones who can. DO NOT WORK HERE!!!
