Guyskindeep_small Buddy Guy is a youthful septuagenarian, and the leading survivor of the famous days of post-war Chicago blues. On his new album "Skin Deep" Guy has both reverence for the past and an eye for the future. He wrote all of the songs on this very strong album. Buddy is definitely a bluesman for these times as mush as a "legacy" artist.
