In a career spanning more than 45 years, Buddy Guy has won five Grammy Awards both for his work on his electric and acoustic guitars, and for contemporary and traditional forms of blues music. By 2004, Buddy Guy had also earned 23 W.C. Handy Awards (the most any one blues artist has received), Billboard Magazine's prestigious The Century Award (Guy was its second recipient) for “distinguished artistic achievement,” the title of Greatest Living Electric Blues Guitarist, and a Congressional Medal of Arts (awarded by the President to those who have made extraordinary contributions to the creation, growth and support in the arts in the United States). In 2005 Buddy Guy was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by friends Eric Clapton and BB King. Guy’s simple acceptance speech - “If you don’t think you has the blues, just keep living.”
