Happy to Have the Blues

Last night I went somewhere! At night….. out…. to TOWN!

My sister bought two tickets to Buddy Guy and I’m so glad she did. It was about 45 years ago (!) I first saw him and many of the other great blues artists at the Rock Pile in Toronto. They all seemed very old to me then so I wondered how old Buddy Guy would be now and how well he could play.  He’s “78 years young” (one of his songs) and still fantastic!

But what really blew everyone away was a 16 yr. old guitar player named Quinn Sullivan who Buddy Guy ‘discovered’ at 8 years old.

I won’t bother writing about how good he is…… here’s the song he wrote about meeting Buddy Guy.
