Buddy Guy Live – Concert Photography

Buddy Guy is the inspiration behind such legendary guitarists as Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page & Stevie Ray Vaughn, just to name a few. He has toured North America and the world since he burst onto the scene in the 1960’s during which he played as the mainstay guitarist for Muddy Waters, the ‘Father of Chicago Blues.”  Over all those years performing, it was his first concert in front of a Springfield, MO audience; and they loved him for it.

Springfield, Missouri Concert

Held at the Gillioz Theatre in Downtown Springfield, Buddy and Ric Jaz, his rhythm guitarist, and other bandmates took the stage following the popular local blues band, The Norman Jackson Band, at around 9:30PM (CST). The 80 year old entertainer then proceeded to wow the audience with his repertoire of guitar skill, humor and singing ability that has captivated us all since this early days. Closed your eyes and you would have thought the man was half the age as the person gracing the stage actually was; truly remarkable to witness and hear.
