Buddy Guy: The Blues Chase the Blues Away.

"Dive into the career of the legendary blues guitarist, a pioneer of Chicago’s West Side sound and major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Featuring new performances and interviews with Carlos Santana and more."

This is going to have to be fascinating! We have seen Buddy Guy 2 or 3 times here in either Lincoln or Omaha and most recently (last year) on the Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea cruise. What a great entertainer and incredible guitarist. The DVR will definitely be programmed to record this one!

"American Masters presents the broadcast premiere of Buddy Guy: The Blues Chase the Blues Away, a new documentary on living legend George “Buddy” Guy, a blues master who transcended his early years as a sharecropper in Lettsworth, Louisiana to become one of the most influential guitarists of all time. A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and eight-time GRAMMY winner, Guy is a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. American Masters — Buddy Guy: The Blues Chase the Blues Away premieres Tuesday, July 27 at 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). , pbs.org/americanmasters and the PBS Video app — just days before Guy’s 85th birthday on July 30.

This new documentary features intimate, original interviews with Guy and archival and never-before-seen performances, including footage of the blues legend on stage with the likes of President Obama and The Rolling Stones. Interweaving archival interviews with Muddy Waters, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Willie Dixon with original interviews with musicians Guy influenced, including John Mayer, Carlos Santana, Gary Clark, Jr., Kingfish and more, American Masters traces Guy’s rich career and lasting impact as one of the final surviving connections to an historic era in the country’s musical evolution.

After moving from Louisiana in the 1950s, Guy quickly rose to prominence as the go-to guitarist for Waters and Howlin’ Wolf amidst the iconic Chicago blues scene, directly inspiring The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and many more. Yet solo commercial success consistently eluded Guy until a late-career breakthrough in the 1990s. A tale of decades-long perseverance, Guy’s journey reflects both the Black experience in America in the 20th century and the history of the blues."

This was just an exceptional show. This was one of those that I will probably watch several more times. If you are a fan of Buddy Guy do not miss the rebroadcast. If you are a fan of the blues, do not miss the rebroadcast! If you are a fan of guitar music, do not miss the rebroadcast.

Yes, it was a documentary about Buddy Guy. But it was so much more. Much time was spent about the British fascination with American Blues and then bringing it back to America. Interviews with Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, John Mayer, and others. A lot of history of Chicago blues and Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf and Lightnin' Hopkins.

There is just no way I can recommend this show more highly.

It will broadcast again several times this week and next. All these times are Central time on my local PBS station. You may have to convert/search.

The following are on the #2 subchannel on my Over the Air (OTA) station. So if you don't have an OTA antenna you may not be able to get it. Your cable/satellite carrier probably doesn't provide this.

If you can't get it from your TV provider there is probably a way to stream it at some point on Hulu or some other service. Figure out some way to see this!!
