ZZ Top
On what they learned from Freddie King

"It's such an awe-inspiring moment. It's such a cool event," ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons says of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. "We came to pay tribute to Freddie [King] on a number of levels and a number of reasons," he says. "We have a long standing history of, first of all, loving the music he was doing, and later, the surprise was getting to be friends and having him mentor and teach us a few things."
