Where B.B. King named Lucille, his guitar.

This location appears to be the place of rock and blues mythology, where the story of how B.B. King named his guitar originated, according to http://www.democrattribune.com/blogs/rye/entry/61373/. On the Web, you can find real plaques that say they are placed near the legendary juke joint. The article at the URL cited suggests that the precise location is known. If anyone has a better address, please comment below. I see articles on the Web about the Twist plantation. It was town-size, being 17,000 acres and having about 500 families living on it. See, for ex., http://digital.wustl.edu/cgi/t/text/text-idx?c=gds;cc=gds;rgn=main;view=text;idno=twi00031.00569.018.
