About Buddy Guy
Resource Entertainment partners had the pleasure of working with Buddy Guy at the Blues Foundation Lifetime Achievement Awards.
Buddy Guy is the king of the contemporary Chicago blues scene, as celebrity superstars patiently queue up to meet and jam with him. His nightclub is one of the hottest blues joints in town, packed to the rafters every weekend. His new albums inevitably rank with the genre's top sellers, but Buddy Guy's roots lie deep in the searing recordings that he did for Chess Records in the 60's.
When he wasn't recording his own songs, Buddy often worked as a session guitarist, backing the legendary Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, and Little Walter. These sessions allowed him to acquire invaluable first-hand knowledge about music that Buddy still puts to use every time he strides across a concert stage.
Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Stevie Ray Vaughan all idolized Buddy Guy, and a generation of Chicago blues fans rate him at the absolute peak of his profession. Amid all of his success, Guy still remains a humble icon, quick to give credit where credit's due.
