Buddy Guy

Born in Louisiana and discovered in Chicago, Buddy Guy has gone on to define the modern electric Blues sound. Though never a huge commercial success, his artistry has always received critical acclaim. A true Blues Guitar Master, Eric Clapton has called him the world's greatest guitar player. Buddy does so much more than just play the guitar. He plays with the guitar. Plucking the strings with his teeth had to inspire younger guitarists who were soon to be on the scene, like Jimi Hendrix. Buddy started his music career in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and relocated to Chicago in 1957. It didn't take long before he was sharing the same stage with Magic Sam, Luther Allison, and Otis Rush, helping create the "Westside Sound" of Chicago Blues. Taking advantage of every possible sound a guitar and amplifier can make, without special effects, Buddy can make his instrument talk as coherently as normal conversation. He plays words, not notes. Buddy teamed up with harmonica master Junior Wells in the late 1960s. They were known as the Blues Brothers long before Jake and Elwood. Buddy continues to tour and make appearances at his Chicago club. He has even been known to stir up a pot of gumbo in the kitchen and serve his guests after the show. Now that's some Blues hospitality! Guy was listed in Rolling Stone magazine's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time". He continues to tour the world and blow audiences away wherever he goes.
