Buddy Guy with Jack Bruce and Buddy Miles have today’s almost forgotten track

Some early Buddy Guy today in a clip I’ve never seen before with another Buddy in Miles, and Jack Bruce…Guy had been around for a few years backing others, but was just beginning to emerge as a man who could lead a band, and what a band this is…Bruce, of course, was known primarily for his work with the recently disbanded Cream, and Miles was kicking around with Mike Bloomfield in a band called Electric Flag and was one of Jimi Hendrix’ Band of Gypsies, so both members of the rhythm section were well acquainted with great guitarists…never knew this existed until this morning when I went looking for something early by Guy…glad I found it…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
