Legendary electric picker, BB King – master of Lucille and owner of the classic Blues tune “The Thrill is Gone” – is bringing his namesake restaurant, bar and nightclub: BB King’s Blues Club to the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.

King is a pioneer (50s) electric-powered blues singer who excelled (largely, in part) due to his soulful guitar style’s expressive string-bending technique, and weaving notes around sounds coming from his gravely voice.
