I had the thrill and pleasure of briefly meeting BB King about 19 years ago in the Atlanta airport. He was sitting by himself, with Lucille of course, so I said hello, had a few words, and shook the great mans hand. He was a true gentleman. The painting is a gift for a young hockey buddy on his 40th birthday. He is a collector of guitars and enjoys playing them every chance he gets. This is the closest he'll get to receiving a guitar from me...ha!
