We’re so fortunate to still have Buddy Guy performing on stage today, but I wanted to back in time a little bit and find some early Buddy Guy videos to share with you. Buddy Guy puts on a great show and has appeared on stage with a lot of great players. Some of the videos I found feature classic performances from Buddy Guy and even a tribute Buddy Guy did for Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and John Lee Hooker. I hope you enjoy the videos as much as I did!
The first video is a blues favorite and it’s called “Sweet Home Chicago.” Buddy Guy plays a great version of it at a show in Houston, TX. Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuRhaDrnlWo.

The next video comes from the movie Chicago Blues in 1970 and features Buddy Guy performing the song, “First Time I Met The Blues.” Find it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_rd8y8A2oE.

Buddy Guy performs probably the fastest version of the song, “Knock On Wood,” that I have ever heard. It’s smoking! Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpa6nvfxmLI&feature=related.

These videos only count for a small taste of the extensive song collection of Buddy Guy, but hopefully it’s enough to wet your appetite. There’s plenty more out there about blues great, Buddy Guy.
