The master of the American blues guitar, particularly the Chicago style of blues. Buddy was a key influence of the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. As a member of Muddy Waters’ band he put some Louisiana Hurricane into electric blues music. A native of Baton Rouge he combined a blazing modernism with a fierce and proud grip on his roots. His frantic leads added a funky swamp fever to Howlin’ Wolf’s ‘Killing Floor’ and Koko Taylor’s ‘Wang Dang Doodle’. Eric Clapton describes him as ‘the best guitar player alive’. He remains one of the last active connections to the golden age of Chess. Born into the poverty of 1930’s Louisiana share-cropping, Guy would pick cotton for a pittance and then later learn to play on a two string ‘diddly bow’ he made himself. He has won 8 Grammys, and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. Rolling Stone Magazine places him above Brian May, Bo Diddley, and Les Paul in its 2003 ‘100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time’, with Guy coming in at number 23.
