King, a legendary bluesman who influenced generations of musicians and fans, died at his Las Vegas home Thursday at age 89. CBS 2’s Brad Edwards reports.
Last weekend in Los Angeles, Chicago blues legend Buddy Guy received a lifetime achievement award at the Grammy Awards for his stellar music career.
The 77-year-old hungered for greatness ever since he grew up on a Louisiana plantation, picking cotton and picking the guitar. By the time he got to Chicago in the late 1950s, he was just plain hungry.
Buddy Guy is part musician, part showman. He’s been performing for nearly 50 years, and you can still catch him at his South Loop nightclub. CBS 2’s Kate Sullivan reports.
From the get-go, the names fit like a small-sized helmet on an XL-sized head. Awkwardly. And now, it’s time for the Big Ten to send “Legends” and “Leaders” on their way. Mercifully.
