Blues legend Buddy Guy grew up in rural Louisiana, but at the age of 21, he moved to Chicago to follow in the footsteps of greats like Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf. With his new CD, Sweet Tea, Guy returns to the style of blues that gave him his start. Liane speaks with Buddy Guy about the reasons behind shelving his slick Chicago blues image for a more raw, primitive sound. (16:09) (Buddy Guy's Sweet Tea is available through Jive/Silvertone Records, catalog # 41751) For more information on Buddy Guy, visit http://www.buddyguy.net.
