James Bay, Mick Jagger Guest On Buddy Guy's Upcoming Album
For those who love great guitar playing, 7-time GRAMMY winner Buddy Guy is in a class by himself, less because he is a legend and more because he just rocks the blues like no other. At the 58th GRAMMY Awards the blues master was joined by his producer Tom Hambridge, winning Best Blues Album for Born To Play Guitar. That same year, Guy received his Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy. Guy and Hambridge have joined forces again on his follow-up to be released on June 15, The Blues Is Alive and Well, with a spectacular featured artist lineup in tow.
Guy, who will be appearing on Netflix's "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman" on May 4, has credited the South for both the origin of what's called the Chicago Blues sound as well the spicy Louisiana cuisine he likes best. But it's his own special flavor that caused the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards to tell Rolling Stone in 2015 that "He's the top honcho now."
