Buddy Guy is a Chicago blues legend. I wanted to pass along this piece from the PBS Newshour, Buddy Guy: ‘Blues Musicians Don’t Retire, They Drop’. You can also find great clips of Buddy Guy performing at the PBS Art Beat site here: Buddy Guy, 75 Years Young. If you are interested in learning more about Chicago Blues, here are some great resources that are part of the library’ s collection.
Here is the description of the video and interview: Sixty years after picking up his first guitar, blues musician Buddy Guy still jams — and has no plans of stopping. Jeffrey Brown and Guy discuss his upcoming memoir “When I Left Home: My Story,” his childhood in rural Louisiana, what his influences were and how his remarkable career helped shape popular music.
Watch Buddy Guy: ‘Blues Musicians Don’t Retire, They Drop’ on PBS. See more from PBS NewsHour.
