Buddy Guy was kind enough to share his thoughts on a few topics, including Muddy Waters, Chicago, Skin Deep's guests, developing an individual style, and why he wears overalls on stage!
Of course, they are all available for embedding.
Dear Blues People,

Buddy Guy's "Skin Deep" finally hits the stores today, and anticipation couldn't be better. Great mentions on the web, radio stations and even a few magazines and newspapers herald the album's release today.

Buddy has kicked off the week by accepting the first Illinois Great Performer Award and opening Best Buy's first instrument store in Downer's Grove last Sunday. He commences a national tour in Silverton, Oregon tomorrow 7/23.

Thanks to all for your support of this great musician. I hope you enjoy the music and the info herein.

And thanks to Buddy Guy for being an inspiration to us all!

Awesome show in Tulalip today! It was the second time that he sat directly behind me and played for the crowd. Amazing entertainer, powerful performer, and he livens up a crowd.

I missed George Thorogood :p Sorry, I'm not a big fan. I love great guitarists; when Buddy left, so did I.
