Blues Breakers

"Without People Like You, They Ain't Gonna Hear The Blues" Buddy Guy Shares Old Memories And New Ones With Tom Marker [Watch]Buddy Guy the musician astounds crowds on a frequent basis. Even though he's getting older now, he still plays often and with an energy that leaves the crowd on their feet. Buddy Guy the person remains the type of individual you could post up next to at a bar and next thing you know, five hours have passed. The stories he tells are endlessly entertaining and provide an introspective look not only into the history of blues music, but into the history of Buddy Guy and how he became the person he is today.
