Happy Birthday, Buddy

Buddy Guy, born George Guy in Louisiana in 1936. Made his first guitar himself when he was 13. Taught himself to play by listening to records of John Lee Hooker and other blues artists.

Been going strong ever since. 

He moved to Chicago in 1957 when he was 21 years old and was taken under the wings of the greats of "the Chicago Blues." Now he is the Chicago Blues.
