Biography

Originally learning his fretting skills on a homemade, two-string diddly-bow, Buddy Guy went on to become one the most revered blues guitarists in the world, playing alongside Eric Clapton, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Leaving behind rural Louisiana, Guy became a regular on the 1950s Baton Rouge Blues scene before moving to Chicago where he was mentored by Muddy Waters as a session musician for the legendary Chess Records. Label founder Leonard Chess dismissed Guy's raucous, flamboyant, high energy style and only allowed him to record one album before he left the label in 1967. Despite a lack of commercial success Guy came to have a big influence on young electric guitarists like Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck and Jimi Hendrix, who Guy taught to play.

His career was revived when Clapton invited him to play his 24 Nights shows at the Royal Albert Hall alongside an all-star line-up of guitar greats in 1990. The shows led to him signing a deal with Silvertone Records and the release of Grammy-winning comeback album 'Damn Right, I've Got the Blues' in '91. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, Guy is recognised as one of the pioneers of feedback, distortion and hard rock with his influence living on in the likes of the Rolling Stones, ZZ Top and Slash. In 2016 his 17th studio album 'Born to Play Guitar' won him a Grammy Award for Best Blues Album and he embarked on a tour of the east coast of America with Jeff Beck.
