BB King's first electric guitar was a Gibson
"I was just a sucker for any guitar I could get and manage to hold on to," he told Music Radar.
"We didn't have money like people did in the towns."
He added that his guitars regularly got damaged or stolen while he was on the road.
Indeed, King stated that on one occasion, his instruments were destroyed when a vehicle ran into the back of his car.
He joked that this at least ensured he could claim for a replacement on his car insurance.
This comes shortly after King told the Telegraph that even at he is still learning new tricks on the electric guitar, despite his age.
He said that if he does not learning something new every day, he considers that day to have been wasted.Posted on 1 Jun 2009 12:40 to category : Instruments News
