When I Left Home: My Story by Buddy GuyAccording to Eric Clapton, John Mayer, and the late Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy is the greatest blues guitarist of all time. An enormous influence on these musicians as well as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck, he is the living embodiment of Chicago blues. Guys epic story stands at the absolute nexus of modern blues. He came to Chicago from rural Louisiana in the fifties—the very moment when urban blues were electrifying our culture. He was a regular session player at Chess Records. Willie Dixon was his mentor. He was a sideman in the bands of Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf. He and Junior Wells formed a band of their own. In the sixties, he became a recording star in his own right.
When I Left Home tells Guys picaresque story in his own unique voice, that of a storyteller who remembers everything, including blues masters in their prime and the exploding, evolving culture of music that happened all around him.

My family was on a summer vacation in North Carolina. On the way to Hilton Head we stopped in Asheville. The only detail I had seen about what we were going to encounter was a small snapshot of a front facade of a cool-looking, smaller house. The photo from the brochure my mom handed me made it look like a French home squeezed between buildings in a city. If you have ever been to the Biltmore Mansion, you'll know that there is nothing small about it. I literally fell down when we all reached the top of the hill to see the Olmsted designed landscape acting as a prelude to the architecture.
