On This Day in 1957

On this day in 1957, Buddy Guy left home for Chicago. Ardent fan Andrew Michael Smith decided to commemorate the occasion by sending Buddy a custom-made polka-dot cigar box guitar, a two-stringer just like Buddy’s first homemade axe. Check out the cool photos! And in honor of the occasion, anybody who picks up an autographed copy of “When I Left Home” (Available here) will get a special “Buddy Guy: Lettsworth to Chicago button.”
