Hats off to 79 year-old blues legend Buddy Guy who won his 7th Grammy last night.
“Whenever I accept an award like this I do it for all the Blues men and women who came before me and never got the recognition they truly deserved.” – Buddy Guy
In honor of his Grammy, watch Buddy Guy and John Mayer jam together on a What Kind of Woman Is This from the Bring ‘Em In album at Farm Aid in 2005. Farm Aids are a treasure trove of collaborations – this is a perfect example.
Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp founded Farm Aid in 1985 and serve on the board of directors. The three agreed that family farmers were in dire need of assistance and decided to plan a concert for America. The Farm Aid concert has been one of the late-summer concert highlights for the last 20 years.
