BB King was known as the "King of Blues". He was inducted into both the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Until recently, King performed in at least 100 concerts a year, fusing together both jazz and blues on his beloved guitar, a Gibson ES-355 he lovingly called "Lucille".
The BB King Blues Club & Grill, which we photographed earlier this year, was opened in 2000, and is one of NYC's premier Live Music Venues & Supper clubs. BB Kings has hosted, some of the greatest legends in music, including Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Alicia Keys, The Allman Brothers, Gipsy Kings, ZZ Top, & Jay Z. #bbking #kingofblues #blues #music #guitar #timessquare #nyc
