フレディ・キング

  • BORN: September 30, 1934, Gilmer, Texas
    1934年9月30日、テキサス州ギルマー生まれ
  • DIED: December 28, 1976, Dallas, Texas
    1976年12月28日、テキサス州ダラスにて死去
  • vocals guitar

生まれ故郷テキサスからシカゴに出て、まずロバート・ジュニア・ロックウッドジミー・ロジャース、エディ・テイラーらから学んだが、フレディのギター・スタイルはむしろ同世代の友人マジック・サムに似ている。60~66年のキング/フェデラル・レコード時代が彼のベストといわれ、有名なインスト曲「ハイダウェイ」や熱気のあるヴォーカル曲が生まれた。70年にはロック・ミュージシャンのレオン・ラッセルのレーベル、シェルターと契約し、二度目の成功を手にする。しかし、この時期の作品は、コアなファンからはあまり評価されていないようだ。また、フレディ・キングはスタジオ作よりライヴとも言われる。ありがたいことに、壮絶なライヴ映像が多数残っている。
