Chanteur Country US né Quilla Hugh Freeman, le 29 Juin 1916 à Vera Cruz (Missouri). Porky Freeman fut un pionnier de la guitare électrique. Il est décédé le 8 Juillet 2001.

Quilla Hugh "Porky" Freeman (born June 29, 1916, Vera Cruz, Missouri,  is an American Western swing performer, bandleader, and songwriter. He is also an electric guitar pioneer and inventor.
In the 1940s he led the Californian based band, the 'Porky Freeman Trio'. One of his early hits, "Porky's Boogie Woogie on Strings", began rock and roll's evolution out of Western swing. As a session musician he backed many of the popular musicians of the time.
His early experimentation with the electric guitar led to several patents for the instrument. One of the patents, 'Single Pickup Frequency Control For String Instrument', led to legal wrangling with Fender.
Porky Freeman died July 8, 2001.
