Jimi Hendrix was a rock god and a hero to many musicians, but in Jimi’s eyes the mighty Buddy Guy was a real hero, and one of the only musicians who left him feeling star struck.
This rare footage from 1968 is blurry and hard to see at times, but it’s clear Jimi is digging the scene as he watches his hero Buddy play “Stormy Monday” before joining him on stage to jam with the band.
Terrible video quality but at least the sound is clear! Buddy later paid homage to Jimi Hendrix by imitating his distinctive style while playing live at Buddy Guy’s Legends in January of 2015.
