Freddie King (September 3, 1934 – December 28, 1976) was an influential American blues guitarist and singer. He is often mentioned as one of "the Three Kings" of electric blues guitar along with Albert and B.B. King.[1]

Freddie King based his guitar style on Texas and Chicago influences and was one of the first bluesmen to have a multi-racial backing band at live performances. He is best known for singles such as "Have You Ever Loved A Woman" (1960) and his Top 40 hit "Hide Away" (1961). He is also known for albums such as the early, instrumental-packed Let's Hide Away and Dance Away with Freddy King (1961) and the later album Burglar (1974) which displayed King's mature versatility as both player and singer in a range of blues and funk styles.[2]

King became an influential guitarist with hits for Federal Records in the early 1960s. He inspired musicians such as Jerry Garcia, Dickey Betts, Stevie Ray Vaughan and his brother Jimmie Vaughan.[3] His influence was also felt in Britain through recordings by blues artists such as Eric Clapton,[4] Peter Green,[5] and Chicken Shack. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

The Understand Men NY P 

Community is a group of volunteers whose lives have been profoundly impacted by the courses from PAX Programs.

We have free co‐ed classes and events in the NY area for anyone interested in improving their relationships with the opposite sex.

We also have events just for graduates of the courses to connect and support each other in implementing their new skills in their lives.

We have such an amazing NY community —generous, happy, appreciative, receptive, giving, contributing people who want to help others.

PAX Programs has been teaching courses to help people have more rewarding relationships with the opposite sex since 1995.  

PAX, the Latin word for “peace”, and creates peace between the sexes by providing unique and immediately useful information and tools to women and men.  They have taught thousands of people through their Understanding Men and Understanding Women Courses.If you would like to learn more about what brings us together, check out the “Free stuff” section on  UnderstandMen.comHope to see you at an event!Understand Men NY Volunteer Team Michelle@UnderstandmenNY.com
