Buddy Guy covers classics at Glastonbury

'Hoochie Coochie Man' among blues legend's selection

Buddy Guy covers classics at Glastonbury
Grammy Award-winning blues guitarist Buddy Guy performed to a huge crowd on the Jazz World Stage at Glastonbury tonight (June 29).

Although Amy Winehouse was performing on the Pyramid Stage at the same time, Guy pulled in an impressive audience, with one fan holding up a banner saying "Buddy Guy is God".

Taking the stage at 9.25pm (BST) and backed by a full band, Guy began by covered fellow blues icon Muddy Waters' 'Hoochie Coochie Man'.

Halfway through the show, Guy, who was a massive influence on a young Jimi Hendrix, said: "I've come here to play the blues and if you don't like it you're at the wrong stage."

Guy then covered Wilson Pickett's blues anthem 'Mustang Sally', which had most of the field dancing and singing along.

Receiving a huge round of applause for his rendition of the song, Guy then covered Peggy Lee's track 'Fever', John Lee Hooker's 'Boom Boom' and Cream's 'Strange Brew'.
