Five-time Grammy Award winner and one of the greatest American blues and rock guitarists and singers. Geroge “Buddy” Guy was born on July 30, 1936 in Lettsworth, Lujzjana.
Buddy Guy began performing in the early 1950s. When he moved to Chicago in 1957, his greatest inspiration was Muddy Waters, the champion of the Chicago scene. A year later, he managed to sign a record deal with the well-known Chess label. During this time, he also recorded with Junior Wells.
However, the times spent on Chess Records were not the best for Buddy Guy – the artist did not find there understanding for his unique style, similar in sound to live performances. The only album he recorded at that time was “Left My Blues In San Francisco”. On Chess Records, Guy was active primarily as a session musician, having the pleasure of recording with artists such as Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor and Howlin ‘Wolf.
The reputation of Buddy Guy was also known in Great Britain, where he first came in 1965. The scene was soaking up the inspiration of the American blues. Guy was one of the favorites of rockers such as Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton.
