I was fortunate to see all Three Kings. Freddie first at the Tower movie theater in Corpus in 1973 or 74. I move to Austin in 1975. On my first night in town I heard Albert King playing at the original Antones on 6th. I'd gotten there early and was having my scotch when I felt a large presence beside me. I looked up, stood up and shook Albert King's hand. First saw B. B. at the old Armadillo World Headquarters in '76. Pressed up against the stage directly beneath him. Had tears in my eyes when he played Rock Me Baby. Got to see him a couple of more times in later years but, that first time was the memory I'm holding dear. Tremendous influence for me and my friends. Opened the door and showed us the road. God Bless B. B. King. My life would have been lesser without your music.
