77 Year Old Blues Legend Buddy Guy Doesn’t Act His Age!

August 23, 2013 - We recorded this interview with blues guitarist and singer Buddy Guy the day after he turned 77. And he turned up early for our 9 AM start!

Guy is a pioneer of the blues. Originally from Louisiana he made his mark in the competitive Chicago blues scene in the 1960’s. His flamboyant guitar style using distortion, a 100 foot cord, and a wah-wah pedal influenced many guitar legends to follow, including Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. His autobiography, When I Left Home: My Story came out last year, and his new double album, Rhythm and Blues came out on his birthday July 30. He tells some classic stories about Chicago in the blues heyday and about meeting Jimi Hendrix.
