Sorry to be so pedantic; but once again the induction for this unbelievable, incredible, words cannot describe musician is as an influence-not a performer.

Saw him perform at Loufest this weekend. After seeing him for the first time, I realized its no wonder Buddy Guy is one of the greatest concert attractions of all-time. Of all the acts that day, Guy was having the most fun on stage out of everyone. He was very cool and humorous, giving St. Louis a lot of crap (he's from Chicago, what to expect, right? lol). Did several covers, even imitating Marvin Gaye on 'Ain't That Peculiar'. For a non-mainstream artist who has won many lifetime accolades, I was impressed. If you haven't already, see him while you can.
