Wikipedia : This day (December 28, 1976), in Dallas, Texas, died Frederick Christian a.k.a Freddie King, an American blues guitarist and singer.

Official Web Site : Howlin Wolf took him under his wing (or paw), and Freddie also began jamming with Muddy Waters’ sidemen, who included Eddie Taylor, Jimmy Rogers, Robert Lockwood Jr. and Little Walter. By 1952 he had started gigged at night and working days in a steel mill (by then he had married a Texas girl, Jessie Burnett).

@allmusic : King signed with Atlantic/Cotillion in late 1968, releasing Freddie King Is a Blues Masters the following year and My Feeling for the Blues in 1970; both collections were produced by King Curtis. After their release, Freddie King and Atlantic/Cotillion parted ways.

@last.fm : Freddie became popular with a young white audience, in Britain as well as the United States, and his playing was a major influence on the upcoming breed of rock guitarists.
