Buddy Guy stands alone as the greatest living blues artist in the world, defining second-generation Chicago blues with his wild performances and screaming, feedback-laden solos. The GRAMMY-winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee is an iconic force on guitar whose incandescent solos reveal the searing, uninhibited soul of the blues. He returns for one night only at Oakland’s Art Deco palace, the Paramount Theatre.

An ace session player for Chess Records throughout the 1960s who backed Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson and Koko Taylor, Guy was largely sidelined during the years that should have been his prime. The Muddy Waters protégé eventually came to define second-generation Chicago blues with his wildly exuberant performances and incendiary guitar playing. His influence was profound across the Atlantic, where British blues lovers like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page absorbed his style. Guy's definitive 1991 album, Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues, officially launched his ascendance, and he’s been making the most out of his late-blooming fame ever since.
