In the mid-1940s, Riley B. King arrived in Memphis. He acquired the nickname Beale Street Blues Boy. It was later shortened to B. B. King. His illustrious, seven-decade career earned him the undisputed title of The King of the Blues. After his death in 2015, his body was paraded down Beale Street while a band played “When the Saints Go Marching In.” Regardless if you want to pay your respect to this musical great, or also want great music and food, plan on visiting B.B. King’s Blues Club on Beale Street. The menu is fabulous. Their specialty is pork ribs. My recommendation is to order a full slab of dry-rub ribs. They are bone-picking delicious! Before or afterwards, visit the Memphis Music Hall of Fame across the street.
