All month I've been on these guys and it's no intentional theme or program. The 3 Kings just collided on my turntable and there wasn't room for anybody else. Here's the main 3 by each King that have driven the whole damn thing..
Freddie King - Going Down (1971)
Albert King - Born Under A Bad Sign (1967)
B.B. King - Heartbreaker (1968)

R.I.P. Jeff Hanneman.
Was very sad to hear the news of his passing at only 49 years of age. Slayer was a big band for me growing up in the 80's and kept listening to them even when I was barely listening to any metal music for a long time. They've never really faltered and 2009's World Painted Blood LP was a great record. They never lost it.
Here's one of my favourite Slayer tracks from 1988's South Of Heaven LP. The groove in this track is insane:
Slayer - Read Between The Lies (1988)
Of course, can't do a Slayer post without a song from 1986's Reign In Blood:
Slayer - Criminally Insane (1986)
I keep listening to this song and it keeps making me think of Bob Dylan's modern records, and how much his band sounds like this. It's almost dead-on at moments. Kind of creepy...
My two-week long bender with Howlin' Wolf continues.
