Buddy Guy

Blues,Rock

Whether blues guitar legend Buddy Guy is playing a lick behind his back, picking strings with his teeth, “singing with gentle menace or bending new curves into a blue note” (The New York Times), his electrifying live performances showcase his incendiary style that altered the direction of the instrument. A pioneer of electric blues, Guy’s name is as synonymous with the great generation of musicians he played with (Muddy Waters; Howlin’ Wolf) as with the rock titans he influenced (Jimi Hendrix; Eric Clapton). An American treasure with a career spanning six decades, his recent work is some of his richest music yet, confirming that “Guy is the greatest living Chicago bluesman, and one of the most influential guitar players ever” (Rolling Stone).
