It isn’t often that we get the chance to be inspired by an individual that inspired our heroes. That is, however, the opportunity that Buddy Guy’s upcoming stop at the Aztec Theatre presents.
The seminal Chicago bluesman, renowned as a guitar player (especially), song interpreter, champion of tradition, and songwriter, has influenced and/or worked with a long list of rock greats, including Stevie Ray Vaughn, Keith Richards, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and countless others.
Even at age 81, Guy still has the musical chops to wow audiences and the kind of emotional charisma that reverberates to the very core of anyone with the heart to truly listen.
Friday, September 1, $45.50-$113.50, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
