Ground Zero evicted from Beale Street

September 22, 2010

The latest Bill Luckett and Morgan Freeman saga involves their project on Beale Street.

The Ground Zero blues club was as closed and evicted from its location on Beale Street Monday, a representative of the club said. 310 Beale, who owns the building, filed a court-ordered eviction against Ground Zero after the blues club fell behind on rent. “We’ve been lied to,” said Ground Zero’s marketing director, Anthony Burns. “We’ve been scammed. Burns said he is siding with Ground Zero managing partner Natosha Huffstickler, who claims the other two groups of investors abandoned their financial obligation to the club. Those investors include actor Morgan Freeman and longtime friend Bill Luckett.

I can’t wait till those guys are managing the State of Mississippi!
