Memphis Pays Tribute to B.B. King with Beale Street Procession

The people of Memphis honored the late, great B.B.

King’s Blues Club before turning onto B.B. King Blues Highway.  King’s final resting place will be in Indianola, MS. A funeral will take place on Saturday.

B.B. King died May 14th at his home in Las Vegas. He was receiving hospice care at the time.
