Strawberry Alarm Clock w/ Skynyrd's Ed King lead guit - Incense & Peppermints 1967

King is the standing guitarist stage right in gold outfit playing a mahogany Gibson SG.

Wiki: King met the members of what was to become the Jacksonville, Florida-based Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd when an earlier incarnation of the band known as The One Percent opened for Strawberry Alarm Clock in early 1968. King was so enamoured with the band that he told vocalist and leader Ronnie Van Zant that if they ever needed his services, he would be happy to join. It was not until 1972 when bassist Leon Wilkeson left the band that Van Zant took King up on his offer and asked him to join Skynyrd as the band's new bassist.[7] Wilkeson soon regretted leaving and rejoined the band, and King switched to lead guitar, creating with Allen Collins and Gary Rossington the triple-guitar attack that became the band's signature sound.

Kind of interesting!

1. Was Not Aware Of This

I saw the rockudoc on Skynard. King left them after Ronnie, in another drunken rage, punched him out.
He woke up the next morning, packed his things, loaded up his guitars & left.
In the movie, he says he still loves all those guys, but enough was enough.
