Buddy Guy

Monday, December 24, 2012

Buddy Guy has been called the greatest blues guitarist of all time, influencing Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and the late Stevie Ray Vaughn, among others, and he’s the living embodiment of Chicago blues. In his new memoir, When I Left Home, Guy tells of moving from rural Louisiana to Chicago in the 1950s, the blues masters he played with, and the evolving culture of music that happened all around him.
