Buddy Guy, guitarist
birth name: George Guy

Buddy Guy

July 30, 1936, Lettsworth, LA

Although he's often complained that Leonard Chess wouldn't allow him to turn up his guitar loud enough, the claim doesn't wash: Guy's 1960-1967 Chess catalog remains his most satisfying body of work. A shuffling Let Me Love You Baby, the impassioned downbeat items Ten Years Ago, Stone Crazy, My Time After Awhile, Leave My Girl Alone, and a bouncy No Lie rate with the hottest blues waxings of the '60s. ~ Allmusic: Buddy Guy ~ retrieved July 25, 2013 © Allmusic
