“Got my first guitar when I was 12 … I was in love.
If I was feeling lonely, I’d pick up the guitar, feel like talking, pick up the guitar; something’s bugging me, just pick up the guitar and play out the anger.
It was an incredible luxury to have this instrument whenever the passion overcame me, and believe me, the passion overcame me night and day”
– from ‘Blues All Around Me’ the autobiography of BB King
