Among the last of the great bluesmen who migrated from the Mississippi Delta to create the electric “Chicago blues” style, Buddy Guy was a session guitarist for Chess Records, supporting names like Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, and he later partnered with harmonica master Junior Wells. Guy also established the famed Checkerboard Lounge nightclub and later Buddy Guy’s Legends on Chicago’s south side.


The seven-time Grammy Award winner has inspired generations of blues-rock guitarists, including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and John Mayer. His new album, The Blues Is Alive and Well, features guest appearances by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Jeff Beck and James Bay.
