    It's a timing thing, I think. At least, in my case, I think it is. But perhaps, underneath it all, it's a blessing. I sing horribly.

    BB King had one voice and Lucille had another voice. You simply don't have one voice over the other. Having him sing over his guitar playing wouldn't have the same effect.

    I bow to the King of the Blues.

    I never could play and sing either--one or the other wasn't going to be done well.
