At the young age of 75, Buddy Guy can still sell out a show and dazzle audiences with his Chicago blues sound and awe-inspiring guitar techniques. Friday, his downtown blues club Legends had a full house as Guy played an impressive two-hour set, part of his annual 16-show residency.


The Baton Rouge native moved to Chicago in 1957 and was signed to the Southside's Chess Records, along with blues stars Etta James and Howlin' Wolf, launching a 50-year career that would lead him to become one of the most recognizable blues guitarists in the nation. As a member of Muddy Waters' band and a house guitarist for Chess Records, the sounds produced on his Fender Stratocaster have influenced stars such as Jimi Hendrix; he has played alongside Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005 and ranked thirtieth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time."


After his performaces at Legends, Guy does a meet and greet with fans, signs autographs and chats. Chicago blues fanatics who haven't already purchased a ticket for Guy's show have missed the opportunity to see him on the weekend. Legends is sold out Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for the remainder of Guy's residency. Tickets are still available for Thursday, January 26 (tomorrow), for $55. Legends is located at 700 S Wabash.
