    People may wonder why Freddie King is so revered. This is why.

    I saw Albert & BB many times but never got to see Freddie live. Cancelled the one time we were supposed to see him in NYC.

    You can tell in the early years of Freddie that he was greatly influenced by country players as can be heard in his version of Remington Ride and many more of his instrumentals

    I love the way he slings that big semi-hollow body over his right shoulder like it's a mandolin.

    I’m a fan of the 3 Kings and have been ever since I was exposed to them. Freddie has always been my favorite.

    Freddie was more Rocker than the other two...raw, fierce, edgy. Love them all but FK was the badass.
