Additional Facts
A Chicago bluesman from Louisiana, Buddy Guy was a young protegÈ of Muddy Waters during the South Side blues heyday of the 1950s, and has carried the torch for the blues ever since, through his collaborations with Junior Wells and his coronation as blues royalty by no less than Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

It wasnít until the 1980s, with testimonials from Vaughan and Clapton, that Guyís career really took off. He won Grammys with his Damn Right Iíve Got the Blues (1991, Silvertone) and in 2004 with the acoustic Blues Singer (Silvertone), and has continued releasing well-received albums and touring all over the world. When not out on the road, he can generally be found performing or relaxing at his nightclub in Chicago.
