Stevangelist Gimme yer best Buddy Guy (12) RE: Gimme yer best Buddy Guy 30 May 01


Buddy has always been one of the "outsiders" when it comes to the purist's view of Chicago (or urban or whatever) blues. He is a talented guitarist; I wonder, however, how much of his show really is a put-on act for the suburban white kids. After all, this is the guy who gives a sh*t that Hendrix (yawn) stole his wild guitar style and hyper stage attitude. Maybe Guy's just a little too well-packaged for some blues fans. Good player, anyway. His work with Junior Wells is superb, as he mostly stays the heck out of the way of the only man original enough on the amplified harp to get copied as much as Little Walter Jacobs.
