Blues legend Buddy Guy has won his 7th GRAMMY award for his 2015 release, “Born To Play Guitar.” The category was “Best Blues Album,” which he accepted with his usual mix of humility and frankness, saying:
“At least I know the blues is not dead yet!
I want to thank my record company, because I don’t think blues is getting played that much no more. And I’m not ashamed to say that, because I used to could drive down the streets and hear Muddy Waters once or twice a week. But I didn’t give up. And I gotta thank my record company for puttin up with me and my producer Tom Hambridge.”
