The blues guitarist B.B. King has his instrument (named Lucille) willed to the Pope on his death. Strange but true...
Can you credit it?!
If the pope outlives B.B., I shall wait for that first great solo to emanate from St Peters in the Vatican on Easter Day.
I dare say it'll take a while...

I don't know Paul, I call my beloved Alfa Romeo Spider 'Lucille' (do you
remember the words from that Kenny Rogers song " picked a fine time to
leave me Lucilleeee...").
