George "Buddy" Guy was born July 30, 1936 in Lettsworth, Louisiana, and began playing professionally in and around Baton Rouge in the early 1950s. He was inspired by local bluesmen Otis "Lightnin' Slim" Hicks and New Orleans based Eddie "Guitar Slim" Jones, as well as by the recordings of T-Bone Walker and Lightnin' Hopkins. In 1958, he beat both Magic Sam and Otis Rush in a club-sponsored "Battle of the Blues" contest, which led Sam to recommend him to Eli Toscano, owner of the Artistic and Cobra labels. Before Artistic went bankrupt, Guy recorded two singles "Sit And Cry" and "This Is the End". Guy then signed with Chess Records in 1960 and became an in-demand session guitarist there, backing such noted artists as Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson and Koko Taylor. "Stone Crazy," Buddy's own record, went to number 12 on the R&B charts in 1962. Guy toured England and quickly became aware of the blues/rock movement building there in 1965.
