The Sky is Crying: Remembering B.B. King


B.B. King is a big part of this barbecue joint. Of course, we all know he is on the infamous mural, right next to Muddy Waters. In remembering the great bluesman, here are a few photos of B.B. King performing at the Uptown Theatre in the early 1980’s. And one photo of B.B. King at Arrowhead Stadium in the late 1970’s. All photos were taken by B.B.’s Lawnside BBQ’s owner Lindsay Shannon.
