More so than any genre, the blues embrace aging. Players in their 60s are kids to the stars who've made it to their 70s or 80s—the legendary Diamond Teeth Mary McClain played annual shows in Miami well into her 90s. So it's pretty perfect that blues legend Buddy Guy, who turns 71 this summer, has been tapped to play his roundly admired Chicago-style guitar licks at the venerable ol' Billy Bob's. Guy is a hero to Ron Wood, Eric Clapton and numerous other players under his influence; Keith Richards and Carlos Santana contributed to Guy's release, Bring 'Em In. Clapton called Guy "without a doubt the best guitar player alive." More credibly, Guy has won five Grammys and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. Former partner of Junior Wells, Guy was originally a protégé of Muddy Waters and Guitar Slim, from whom he picked up a love of stage antics like using drumsticks for picks and lunging into the audience. This should be a show for the ages.
