At age 86, Buddy Guy is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and the recipient of many awards, including 8 Grammies, a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award and 38 Blues Music Awards—the most received by any artist. 

“He was for me what Elvis was probably for other people,” said Eric Clapton of Guy at his own Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2005. In 2021, the PBS show American Masters released Buddy Guy: The Blues Chase the Blues Away. The documentary follows Guy’s rise from picking cotton in Louisiana as a child to becoming one of the most influential guitar players of all time.
