Wow! This is super group Joe Bonamassa, Dusty Hill, Derek Trucks and Billy Gibbons in “Going Down”. A real treat for the ears! They played together at the Rock Hall Of Fame induction of Freddie King in 2012. This was the performance of the night! Joe Bonamassa, Billy Gibbons, and Derek Trucks brought the house down and did the late, great Freddie King more than proud!
