Lucille: The name of every one of B.B. King's guitars. As legend has it, King was playing a dance hall in Arkansas during the winter of 1949 when two men, fighting over a woman named Lucille, knocked over a flaming barrel of kerosene that was being used to heat the hall. Realizing that he had left his guitar in the building, King dashed back in to retrieve the acoustic instrument. He named that guitar, and every one since, "Lucille" to remind him not to do something as stupid as running into a burning building.
