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.
