Earl Silas Johnson IV 
      American rhythm-and-blues musician and songwriter (b. Feb. 7, 1934, New Orleans, La.—d. April 17, 2003, New Orleans), played an incandescent guitar and wrote a number of songs that became standards of the genre. His strongest influence and mentor was Guitar Slim, and this influence was apparent in his early recordings, in particular the 1954 song “A Mother's Love.” In 1955 King had a national hit with “Those Lonely, Lonely Nights.” Among the best-known and most-covered of his subsequent songs were “Trick Bag,” “Big Chief,” and “Come On (Let the Good Times Roll).” His albums included Glazed (1988), Sexual Telepathy (1990), and Hard River to Cross (1993).
