Buddy Guy – Living Proof
“I’m 74 years young, there’s nothing I haven’t done,” blues legend Buddy Guy begins on the opening track of Living Proof before he rips through a frantic, attacking guitar solo that sounds like he’s 21. While “Thank Me Someday” brings back his childhood memory when he drove his family insane with his guitar playing, “Stay Around A Little Longer” displays a soulful duet with B.B. King. Carlos Santana also shows up on “Where The Blues Begins” for some Latin flavor. With a hell of a voice backing by some mean guitar riffs, Mr. Guy is indeed a Living Proof for a bluesman.
