Amen to that.
Love the Texas Cannonball, not only the rockingest of the 3 Kings,
but his stage shirts may have had the largest lapels of any known to mankind in the 70's!

LMAO, I have a video of him somewhere with positively gargantuan shirt collar tails. And he seriously rocks a jumpsuit as well.

Thanks, laid back cover of Bill Withers. That hit the spot. Love Freddie..I had Freddie cranked up in the car today listening to him live playing Let the Good Times Roll.

Joe Bonamassa is leading the Jam at the RocK N Roll Hall of Fame induction for Freddie.

Long overdue. He had more of a rock sound than the other Kings already in the RnR HOF. (not to imply they were not deserving)

Listen to Clapton's sound with Mayhall, and compare that to Freddie.

Bingo.

Freddie had it all - great vocals, killer guitar, superb songs, and a commanding presence.

The man had a bunch of them, and fortunately for us theres quite a bit of video of him performing
live. Hard to believe he only made it to 42.

Love to see Freddie getting his due here, and some respect and acknowledgement.

Some of my favorites:

"Big Legged Woman" from a Swedish tv show
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wGU3sInI-o&feature=related

and the vocal on "Ghetto Woman" is an amazing hybrid of soul/blues vocal
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptG-9gL-uoY&feature=related

the bump and groove of "Boogie Funk" on Old Grey Whistle Test '73
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBWID1ygQbo&feature=related

And thats Billy Cox on bass and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown on Rickenbacher backing him
on "San-Ho-Zay/Tore Down" during a 1966 Dallas tv performance.

Freddie King was/is a tremendous influence in the world of music. Freddie was just an incredible musician and a human being. Glad He is finally getting his just recognition.

I miss Freddie King....He is the MAN...

"Fittingly, Joe Bonamassa will help posthumously induct King Saturday with another member of the younger generation of blues-rock virtuoso guitarists: Derek Trucks of The Allman Brothers Band. They'll be joined by Freddie King's fellow Texans Dusty Hill and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top for a rock hall jam in Freddie's honor. Wanda King, his eldest daughter, will represent the family at the induction. "Freddie King set the standard of a black bluesman doing rock blues," Wanda King says. "Clapton, [John] Mayall, Jeff Beck, Warren Haynes the list goes on and on. Many of these guys really jump-started their careers off of my father's music. He definitely has a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame."
