"A major inspiration for Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, John Mayer and countless other guitarists on both sides of the Atlantic, Buddy Guy remains an indomitable force at 85.
The subject of the recent film documentary “Buddy Guy: The Blues Chase the Blues Away,” the Louisiana native came of musical age in Chicago in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
When he performs classics by Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon and other blues giants, he is reanimating songs he first performed 60 or more years ago as a young member of their bands.
A soulful singer and incendiary guitarist, Guy is a vibrant champion of the music to which he has devoted his life. He should be celebrated as often as possible."
