Buddy Guy has released a stream of his track Flesh & Bone, featuring guest collaborator Van Morrison.
It’s taken from his latest album Born To Play Guitar – and it’s dedicated to the late B.B. King.
Guy tells Billboard: “Every time I go in the studio now, my mind is on all the great blues players that have passed on before B.B. They were my teachers. When I got to know them, they would always wind up saying, ‘If I go before you, boy, keep playing those blues.’
“The last words Muddy Waters told me was, ‘Man, just keep playing those blues.’ I’ve got a song on the album for him – Come Back Muddy – so when we heard B.B. was gone I said, ‘Let’s put one on for him, too.’”
