BUDDY GUY 'Damn Right I've Got The Blues'.... Well, I Guess, or BLUZZZ-TO-THE-BONE


by Sheila Karnes, see link
Well, I've always loved BUDDY GUY  HERE and HERE and who hasn't? He sings the blues, or as I love to call it....THE BLUZZZ, and he's gotta right to, he's 'BLUZZZ-TO-THE BONE'. Heard Guy 'sing' or more like... 'wail' one of my favorites this mornin'....'Damn Right I Got The Blues' [thanks Guitar Center ].
Buddy Guy's blues is different and unique, a style of his own....But, of course, BLUZZZY to the bone....or really cool. SMILE. His style and techniques influenced not only blues, but also 'rock and roll' greatly. So, where would rock and roll be today without Buddy. It's painful for me to to even think about that.
He's played with Blues Great's MUDDY WATERS, OTIS RUSH and JUNIOR WELLS in the late '50's when movng to Chicago [born in Louisiana], his style is sometimes called 'Chicago-Blues'. Well, here's a quote from JON PARELES that says it well..." Mr. Guy, 68, mingles anarchy, virtuosity, deep blues and hammy shtick in ways that keep all eyes on him.... [Guy] loves extremes: sudden drops from loud to soft, or a sweet, sustained guitar solo followed by a jolt of speed, or a high, imploring vocal cut off with a rasp.... Whether he's singing with gentle menace or bending new curves into a blue note, he is a master of tension and release, and his every wayward impulse was riveting."
Some of our awesome heros of music and blues that Guy has influenced were: STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, ERIC CLAPTON, JIMMY PAGE, JEFF BECKJONNY LANG, JIMI HENDRIX, and HOWLIN WOLF....WOW, and of course, the list gos on and on.
Here's another cool quote, this time from MUSICIAN MAGAZINE and WIKIPEDIA: "Buddy Guy is by far and without a doubt the best guitar player alive...if you see him in person, the way he plays is beyond anyone. Total freedom of spirit, I guess. He really changed the course of rock and roll blues.". 'I highly agree' Jan. This 'Guy' is amazing. SMILE again. AND, he's won so many awards, I'm not even gonna try to list them all, just go to WIKIPEDIA [link above] and read them all for yourself. O.K? Be prepared and believe me when I say there's a lot.
So, why did I listen to Buddy Guy this morning? First of all, I love this 'Guy', And, DON COHEN/vocals and fearless leader of THE DON COHEN JAZZ QUARTET plays some mean harp and we ALL know that means cool BLUZZZ, doesn't it? Cohen's just itching to do some harp at RHYTHM AND RYE in Olympia on Monday, September 22nd, starts at 8 pm., and he sent us a link to the tune.
What a fun gig the 22nd's gonna be. Come down and enjoy yourself. There's a BIG dance floor and some great live music, cold drinks, a BIG bathroom if you're on wheels and NO stairs too. It's a pretty new place, new owners [was the Royal Lounge before ] So, I'm not sure about the food...'er' I mean, what kinda food'll be there...but, I'm sure it will be awesome and tasty. So, don't worry. I'll see ya there on the 22nd. I'll have my dancing shoes on. Jan
