Marcus King took Duane Allman’s very own Gibson Hummingbird in hand recently to pay homage to the Allman Brothers Band’s hit “Midnight Rider.” The impromptu session occurred at The Big House Museum in Macon, Georgia, the official museum of the Allman Brothers Band.
King, who leads the Marcus King Band, shown right, was discovered by former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes, who signed the teenager to his own Evil Teen Records imprint, and released King's debut album, Soul Insight, on October 30, 2015.
“I knew I was born to play guitar when I was seven,” King says. “When I got in trouble in school, my daddy said I could choose between a spanking and getting my guitar taken away for a week. I took the spanking.”
