Buddy Guy: 'I Worry About The Future Of Blues Music' - NPR

Just listen as to the I'm sayin': Just keep livin'. King, Muddy Waters and also himself.

Today, however, Guy worries that way as well few individuals are hearing the blues from anyone. In the actual event that anyone listen for the lyrics in the blues, whether it don't hit you, it hits somebody an individual know. [Laughs.] I've got an product of paper during my club, "You loan your current friend your own money, you finna shed your money as well as your friend."

And that will be the blues.

And that can be the blues, sir.

Buddy Guy, this has been a real honor plus a real pleasure talking to you. That's what's taking place using the blues. I'm certainly not telling you to attempt out him all day, all night; just play him. Guy played guitar behind his back, picked strings together using his teeth and made grand entrances by simply starting in the road as well as strolling via the crowd for the stage.

At 79, Guy nonetheless plays being a wild man. you can listen to it in Born to always be able to Play Guitar, his new album, which usually celebrates his six decades playing the particular blues. Just Like I said, your blues will come in most denominations, man. is that the approach an individual took?

A love letter, a new text letter, whatever sort of letter anyone wanna contact it, I hope you're correct thus somebody can say, "Well, maybe this audio isn't as poor as I believed it was." It's worth listening to. Actually should you acquire within the middle regarding the expressway and also your automobile quit runnin', anyone got blues.

It's some thing everybody can easily relate to.

You much better believe. In case they don't listen to it just like I would and also listen into it as well as have no idea about it -- a person at any kind of time been to Louisiana where they will cook this all gumbo?

. Prior To B.B. I'm fine." the next couple days, that's when I got the contact from the media and also requested me how did I really feel -- he had passed.

And have you taken that as the mission?

Well, coming from him, I were needed to pay interest to him. A New great deal of folks examine blues as well as believe it will be a sad music. [Laughs.] Consequently should you by zero means tasted it, would you adore it. King died, it had been one thing both musicians spoke concerning from length, he says, and here together with Greene, Guy describes the particular mission handed down through Muddy Waters.

I surprise if there aren't as many young black musicians devoting on their particular own to the blues. And I Also had a amount of friends until I loaned these people a new large amount of money; then I lost them. Nevertheless it's actually a audio the actual guitarist fears will be fading.

Born along with raised throughout Louisiana without having operating drinking water or perhaps electricity, Guy tells NPR's David Greene, "They got mosquitoes in Louisiana that will almost lift an individual out of your bed," which created his mother and father a bit upset when he soon started tearing the particular metal wire off your screen door. [Laughs.] He said, "Y'all just keep playing in which em-effing blues as well as don't let in which blues die. Tell me what happened, that which you guys said to each other.

We heard he has been sick and the man has been hiding. Maybe a few teenagers just approaching have no idea since they don't really play his records anymore, but Clapton, all with the British guys learn about him. That's why Your Rolling Stones called by themselves Your Rolling Stones. I tell everybody I would love to know Muddy Waters twice a week. While he started, his audiences had been most black -- except, he tells NPR, for that occasional cop. Thank anyone so, thus much.

Well, thank you really much, and I appreciate whatever you may do to assist your blues remain alive.

Buddy Guy may be the blues, along with he's our link to a genre that's embedded within the history of America. of course, anyone know, I spent my youth in it.

You had a conversation using Muddy Waters about the blues when he ended up being rather sick, shortly just before he died. That Will was one of his records. He landed there within 1957 and swiftly designed a reputation like a showman. Now, the particular teenagers have no idea nothing regarding it unless -- I understand satellite [radio] do play blues, but we'd like a lot much more than that. Buddy Guy offers all of them credit rating for creating the particular blues more mainstream whilst furthermore acknowledging pioneers such as B.B. I adore it.

I do, too. We rang him and in which he said, "Aw, man, I'm fine." He has been profane, I can't say what he said.

I have. However the particular scene provides changed. He didn't allow us to know he had cancer. This will come with your family, with your lover, together together with your friend. Allow the young adults realize exactly where everything started.

This album strikes me as a love letter for the blues. Guy became obsessed with most the exciting blues music coming from Chicago masters similar to Muddy Waters. I has been playing him prior to I fulfilled him, so why quit playing him when he was passed along with gone?

For your younger people who have zero idea a lot in regards to the blues, what's the case in which you'd create to go buy any Muddy Waters album as soon while they can?

If you don't have the blues and don't know about the blues, just keep livin'.

What would you mean by that?

[Laughs.] at least, you're gonna visit a far better period or perhaps a worser amount associated with time in life. He had been attempting to build a guitar.

Finally, his dad got him the real guitar and the family members got electricity. in the '60s, the actual blues fell out of style along with middle-class blacks and the songs discovered a brand name new audience when artists similar to Eric Clapton and also The Actual Rolling Stones started playing it. and we sang about the negative along with positive times, so you cannot say it's all bad.

What produced Muddy Waters consequently important to you?

Not me -- he has been important to everybody. Do you be concerned concerning the future of blues music?

I be concerned about the way ahead for blues songs whether or perhaps not you may well be black or white
