At age 80, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city's halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has received 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."
He released his latest studio album Born To Play Guitar in July 2015 on Silvertone/RCA Records, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart. It was produced by GRAMMY Award-winning producer/songwriter and Buddy's longtime collaborator (and Buffalo native) Tom Hambridge.
