Our beloved namesake BB King passed away tonight at the age of 89. BB touched the lives of millions of people across the world as the King of the Blues. He was a world class entertainer and a wonderful, kind man. I am very fortunate to be able to call him my friend. BB King was truly one of a kind rising from extreme poverty in the Mississippi Delta to become a musical icon and world wide legend. He was proud to represent the State of Mississippi and Memphis Music around the World.
While we at BB King’s Blues Clubs are deeply saddened by BB’s passing and are mourning our loss we know that he is now at peace in Heaven.
Our mission going forward will be to strive to continue the Spirit of BB King by entertaining and bringing happiness to people for years to come.
To our wonderful friend and namesake Riley B King we love you BB ! Thank you for sharing your life with us.May you rest in peace.
With tremendous Love and Respect
