Buddy Guy was instrumental in putting Chicago blues on the map, both as a sideman and a solo artist. He got his break as a session player at Chess, working with giants like Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf before busting out on his own. But he really made his name in the late '60s with a string of albums for Vanguard and collaborations with Junior Wells. He experienced a surge in popularity in the '80s, and by the '90s, he had racked up a collection of GRAMMY®s. His 2005 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame only confirmed that Guy was a blues legend for the ages.
