Buddy Guy

Buddy Guy is one of my favorite blues guitarists and is the obvious grandfather of the blues rock guitarists of the 60's (Hendrix, Clapton, SRV).

Both of these examples were taken off the album Drinking TNT 'n Smoking Dynamite which was recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival in '74. Man, I wonder if the festival still holds this quality material? Anybody know? I guess I have my right to be skeptical.

I also just found out that Buddy Guy was the session player on my favorite Muddy Waters album "Folk Singer".

David Gemmil did a cool drawing inspired by Buddy. Check it out HERE.
