The reason for this name was an incident, that happened in a club long ago. BB King played with his band in a small bar which was heated by a fire in an oildrum. While the band was playing, two guys started a fight over a woman. During this fight the oildrum was knocked over and all of a suuden the location was in flames and everybody rushed outside. And outside it was, where BB King noticed, that he left his guitar onstage. So, risking his very own life, he ran back into the burning club and had a really narrow escape with his then saved guitar. The name of the women, the two men fought over was Lucille and BB King named all his guitars after her eversince.
