We were sad­dened at the pass­ing of two iconic play­ers re­cently. For­mer Lynyrd Skynyrd gui­tarist Ed King (pic­tured) died in Nashville on 22 Au­gust, aged 68. King fea­tured on the band’s first three al­bums along­side gui­tarists Gary Ross­ing­ton and Allen Collins, co-writ­ing the en­dur­ing, 1974 clas­sic Sweet­home­al­abama.

Funk Broth­ers gui­tarist Ed­die Wil­lis passed away on 20 Au­gust, aged 82. As part of the le­gendary Mo­town ses­sion band, Wil­lis played on hits by Ste­vie Won­der and The Supremes.
