In Memory Of Denny Freeman
Guitar great Denny Freeman, a staple of the Austin music scene, has died aged 76 after a brief cancer battle. Freeman worked with everyone from Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan to Bob Dylan and Taj Mahal over his more than 50 year career, and played piano and organ in addition to electric guitar.
Freeman became a central figure in the burgeoning Austin blues scene that launched both SRV and Jimmie Vaughan’s Fabulous Thunderbirds, among many other acts.
