Beale Street Tonight 

Steve Cropper, a legendary Blues Brother, moved to Memphis at the age of 9, and over the years, he has become an influential musician, producer, and songwriter. As a founding member of Booker T. & the MGs, Cropper had much to do with the early success of Stax Records and co-wrote a number of enduring tunes, including "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" and "In the Midnight Hour." Today, Cropper still strums his guitar with the best of them, including Paul Simon, Ringo Starr, and Buddy Guy. Cropper is honored with a brass note on Beale's Walk of Fame.
