4-CD/DVD box set celebrating Buddy Guy's 70th birthday.

5-song radio sampler features the previously unreleased "I'd Rather be Blind, Crippled and Crazy" (with John Mayer) and "Nobody Understands Me But My Guitar" plus tracks featuring Jeff Beck and Bonnie Raitt.

Buddy Guy is available for radio interviews by phone most mornings before 11am CST. To schedule interviews, receive the radio sampler and/or setup any on-air promotions, please contact Andy Cahn at cahnmedia@comcast.net or 215-279-7632.

On May 30, 1957, Buddy Guy recorded his first demo in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Four months later he took a train to Chicago. Over the course of the next 50 years – from his early Chess sessions with Muddy Waters to his legendary collaboration with Junior Wells to present day sessions with John Mayer and Eric Clapton – Buddy Guy would go on to influence generation after generation of guitar players.
