#7 The Forgotten King

The Forgotten King
Episode Description

When it comes to the blues, there are three Kings: B.B., Albert and Freddie. B. B. King is unrivaled, Albert King had more hit singles and Freddie, well, he sometimes gets short shrift. A tireless road dog with an outsized stage presence to match his huge voice and guitar tone, Freddie King was a huge influence of generations of artists, including Joe. On this week’s episode of the Pickup, Joe talks about his favorite Freddie King tracks and why Freddie should no longer be the forgotten King.
