This Day in Music - December 28, 1976 - Blues guitarist Freddie King dies at 42

By Richard K. Barry

I love Freddie King's music. He was a huge force in blues music, having influenced people like Eric Clapton and Jimmy Vaughan.  His best known songs are "Have You Ever Loved a Woman," (1960) and "Hideaway" (1961).

Didn't live a long time, but did some fine work. 

I was always partial to "Tore Down."
