ABOUT BUDDY GUY: Buddy Guy is among the most notable historic catalysts for evolution of the Electronic Blues genre, and has continued to influence the world of music since his career began with Chicago’s Chess Records in the late ‘50s. This marked the time period of iconic change in the world of Blues and led to the creation of the well-known West Side sound of Chicago, which Guy pioneered with Magic Sam and Otis Rush. Guy can also be seen in the Foo Fighter’s documentary series, Sonic Highways, which features a compilation of interviews and footage from his journey that emphasize his ability to “make something from nothing” as the son of a sharecropper from Lettsworth, Louisiana. In the beginning, recording alongside Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and the rest of Chess Records’ label helped Guy explore his abilities and gain recognition that would lead to his faithful following of over 50 years.
Buddy Guy is ranked 23rd on the Rolling Stones’ list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, and has received such prestigious awards as the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, a record 34 Blues Music Awards, seven Grammy Awards and the 2012 Kennedy Center Honor Award. He has performed with countless well-known artists, namely the Rolling Stones, and is seen performing with them in archive footage included in the 2008 documentary film, Shine a Light. Guy’s most recently released albums, Rhythm & Blues (2013) and Born to Play Guitar(2015), both debuted as No. 1 on the Billboard Top Blues Albums Chart, with Born to Play Guitar comprising of collaborations with icons Van Morrison, Joss Stone, Kim Wilson and Billy Gibbons.
