Performers

Inductee Ed King’s guitar was the note you heard first and what stuck out in a song.

From co-writing “Incense and Peppermints” to the signature opening of “Sweet Home Alabama,” King’s riffs and arrangements completed Lynyrd Skynyrd’s distinct sound and continue to influence generations of guitarists.
