Buddy Guy wasn’t always the reigning king of the blues. Before being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and before he took the No. 23 spot on Rolling Stones's list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists, he was just a boy from Baton Rouge. Even when he moved north to the postwar, electric-blues laboratory of Chicago, his ecstatic style of play—characterized by wild licks, wicked bends, and no-holds-barred distortion—had confused and dismayed fellow blues musicians, including, according to a Rolling Stone exposé, B.B. King.

But Buddy was just ahead of the curve, trailshredding a path for rock musicians such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. Although well respected among musicians, Buddy didn’t receive widespread recognition until 1991, when his album Damn Right, I’ve Got the Blues notched the first of his five Grammys into his guitar strap. Since then he’s continued to build on a legacy cemented with classic tracks such as “Stone Crazy” and “First Time I Met the Blues,” a cautionary, terrifying tale for anyone who finds Blues out on their doorstep late at night.

At the Greek Theatre, Buddy wails with frequent tourmate and fellow Grammy winner Jonny Lang. Lang, a former guitar prodigy, put Fargo, North Dakota, on the blues map when he was just 12 years old, after his dad took him to see the Bad Medicine Blues Band. Jonny then found himself drawn to the guitar, forming a natural pair much like peanut butter and jelly or peas and a toddler's nostril. His first solo album, Lie to Me, went multiplatinum, heralding the Grammy win for 2006's gospel-influenced Turn Around.

The Greek Theatre

Encircled by the mature trees of Griffith Park, the Greek Theatre is a premier outdoor venue with a rich history in Los Angeles. Opened in 1931, the open-air theater cradles up to 5,900 spectators in a design originally inspired by an ancient Greek temple, which pleased the gods by stacking its amplifiers to face Mount Olympus.

"Great venue except for handicapped"
The elevator taking us up a level got stuck and was clearly in poor repair. The staff did their best to be helpful, the problem was with the facility itself. There are an enormous amount of steps in this lovely place to see a concert but be forewarned if you have mobility issues.

"The Head and the Heart Concert"
Of course the concert was great, but I will stick to the Greek theater. It is gorgeous. With LA weather being nearly perfect, it was the perfect backdrop to a really cool experience at the Greek. Nestled on the side of a hill with tall trees, the theater is beautiful and the acoustics were... Read More
