Freddie King

Real Name:
Freddie Christian
Profile:
American blues guitarist and singer.
Born September 3, 1934 in Gilmer, Texas, died December 28, 1976 in Dallas, Texas.
He moved to Chicago, Illinois, in 1949. In 1956 he cut his first record as a leader. Later he was one of the first bluesmen to have a multi-racial backing band at live performances. Freddie King is often mentioned as one of “the three kings” of electric blues guitar along with Albert King and B.B. King (no relation).
In 1993 by proclamation from the Texas Governor Ann Richards, September 3 was declared the Freddie King Day. Freddie King placed 15th in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time. In 2012, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
