Chicago’s most famous living blues musician is being honored with a lifetime achievement award. Buddy Guy received the award last night at the Grammys. Guy and other artists say their music should be just as celebrated locally. And they wonder...if Chicago is the home of the blues, then why doesn’t it have a permanent home in Chicago?
Back in the 1950s Buddy Guy was a young guitarist living in Louisiana. Like many others he eventually traveled north to Chicago, where the blues scene was thriving.
