Synopsis: The story of blues legend Buddy Guy, his 35 years on the Blues scene, and his influence on Rock-and-Roll.

From Booklist: When rock star Eric Clapton declared in the 1980s that Buddy Guy is "by far and without a doubt the best guitar player alive," the blues legend had no record contract and was playing a string of small clubs. Since that time, Guy's influence has become more widely acknowledged, and his fortunes have certainly increased with his growing reputation. Damn Right I've Got the Blues is laudatory yet frank in discussing Guy's accomplishments as well as his troubles. From an evolutionary standpoint, Guy is a historic link between such electric blues pioneers as Howlin' Wolf and much later revivalists like Stevie Ray Vaughan. Guy's use of feedback had a profound influence on several rock musicians, especially Jimi Hendrix. Through interviews with the man himself, other musicians, and other figures in the music industry, Wilcock makes clear this and Guy's other achievements and also the vicissitudes of Guy's lifelong journey from Louisiana poverty through Chicago's blues bars to his current fame. An abundance of photographs and a thorough discography add to the book's value to blues aficionados. Aaron Cohen
