Buddy Guy Talks “Living Proof” Playing with B.B. King

Buddy Guy Talks “Living Proof,” Playing with B.B. King

“There was a spiritual thing my mom and dad used to tell me,” says Buddy Guy with sly smile. “I’m too far gone to turn around.”

Either that, or he’s too goddamn good with a six-string to turn around. Whatever the case may be, Buddy Guy’s playing is as transcendent on his latest album, Living Proof, as it was on Hoodoo Man Blues in 1965. Living Proof hits shelves on October 26, and it features guest spots from Carlos Santana on “Where the Blues Begins” and B.B. King on “Stay Around a Little Longer.” However, Buddy’s phenomenal precise playing practically lights up the fretboard of his Fender strat on these new cuts. Living Proof is further evidence why Buddy is one of the greatest guitar players of all time.

Buddy Guy sits down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for an exclusive interview about Living Proof, why the blues doesn’t die, collaborating with B.B King and so much more. Full Story at Artist Direct
