Final farewell to B.B. King – with Lucille in attendance

The funeral of B.B. King has taken place in his hometown of Indianola, Mississippi, and
not surprisingly the blues man was joined for his final journey by his beloved custom-made guitar, known as Lucille.

As the instrument lay propped up on King’s casket, hundreds of mourners packed into Bell Grove Baptist Church to honour the one-time cotton picker whose talent inspired generations of musicians.

The congregation was told that despite King’s greatness, he was loved by everyone.
