Buddy Guy Interview

Here is a nice interview from Buddy Guy.
It is interesting to read about his influences, and his thought on playing the blues in a juke joint on the weekend for drinks, and picking cotton during the week. I have certainly had arguments in the past with fellow musicians about the lifestyles of the great bluesmen. To many people think that these guys live like rockstars, when the reality is that many of these guys had to work during the day to be able to play at night. Even today a handful of artists, like BB, or Buddy Guy have a life style anywhere near that of a rockstar. most of the professional blues players are playing every night and trying to make a living selling CDS. Not living the lifestyle of the rich and famous.
