Blues Legends

Buddy Guy

Buddy Guy was born on July 30, 1936, in Lettsworth, Louisiana. At 7 years old, he made a guitar and taught himself to play.

Muddy Waters discovered Guy while playing at clubs in Chicago, and helped him find work at the 708 Club.

Guy recorded hits from the 1960s through the '80s. In 2003, he released his first acoustic blues album.
