The Chicago Blues Ambassador – Buddy Guy
The ambassador of Chicago Blues, Buddy Guy, filled the Metropolis and even reminisced back to an early visit to Montreal in 1967. A major influence to Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton. Vaughan stated that, “Without Buddy Guy, there would be no Stevie Ray Vaughan.” Rolling Stone Magazine listed Buddy as number 33 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. In the 60’s he played alongside Muddy Waters at Chess Records as the house guitarist, and started a musical partnership with Junior Wells. Often cited as the bridge between the blues and rock & roll, as well as between Howling’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. Opening the show was 16 year old (born:March 26, 1999) Quinn Sullivan – who was only 7 when he first played with Buddy in 2007.
