Buddy Guy

1936 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

When Buddy Guy first started out in the late 1950s, he helped shape the sound of Chicago blues. He is an electrifying blues player, inspiring Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix and many others. With over 50 years of experience under his belt, this Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has not slowed down a bit. Guy experienced a revival of sorts in the 1990s. Since he found his way back into the limelight, the famous guitarist has been a regular on the festival circuit in North America and Europe.
