A great artist and sampled in plenty of hardcore tracks. SL2 - DJs Take Control and 4 Horseman of the Apocalypse - Drowning In Her spring to mind...

I was lucky enough to have seen him play a few times and he was always excellent, the word legend is often used too frequently in the scene and not many are worthy of it but Frankie Knuckles was.

I'm gonna dedicate my next Flashback old skool night to Frankie Knuckles.
