Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck,
Junior Walker, Gary Moore, Jeff
Healey, Dave Edmunds, Magic
Sam, Hound Dog Taylor, Ronnie Earl, Chris Spedding, and
Joe Bonamassa. In America,
his "Hide Away" was a surprise
crossover pop hit in April of '61,
reaching #29 on the Billboard
Top 40 - an unusual feat for a
genuine bluesman, rarer still
considering it was a guitar
instrumental.
King's instrumentals thereafter became required listening
for players at the intersection
of blues and rock. Among the
first to do serious listening
were the "Boys of Beano" - that
direct lineage weaving together
the contributions of Clapton,
Green, and Taylor in the eventful years of the Bluesbreakers
reign. Each took a turn with a
signature Freddie King instrumental; reworking his pieces
into guitar showcases for the
incipient blues/rock brewing
in Britain. Their variations
on King's themes reveal much
about each player as an accomplished soloist and the intrinsic
link of blues and rock.

ALL THE KING'S MEN
The Boys of Beano Do the Freddie
By Wolf Marshall

I

n this special edition of "Fretprints," we offer a
look at three Freddie King licks as interpreted
by Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor
during their time in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers,
featured in this issue.

King was an icon to a generation of blues-rock
guitarists coming of age in the '60s, particularly
in Britain. His tunes have received reverential
covers from Clapton, Green, Taylor, Albert
King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, King Curtis,
