Buddy Guy @ B.B. King's

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 6 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."

These many years later, Buddy Guy is a genuine American treasure, and one of the final surviving connections to an historic era in the country's musical evolution. He keeps looking to the future of the blues through his ongoing work with his 16-year-old protege, Quinn Sullivan.

"I worry a lot about the legacy of Muddy, Wolf, and all the guys who created this stuff," he says. "I want people to remember them. It's like the Ford car--Henry Ford invented the Ford car, and regardless how much technology they got on them now, you still have that little sign that says `Ford' on the front.

"One of the last things Muddy Waters told me--when I found out how ill he was, I gave him a call and said, `I'm on my way to your house.' And he said, `Don't come out here, I'm doing all right. Just keep the damn blues alive.' They all told me that if they left here before I did, then everything was going to be on my shoulders. So as long as I'm here, I'm going to do whatever I can to keep it alive."
