    One of the most unaffected human beings that I have ever met. I saw him in Atlanta in the 1990s and as I was there early I was waiting in the lobby when a man comes out to smoke a cigarette. I started to tell him I had been looking forward to this venue as I was a big Buddy Guy fan when I suddenly realized that I was talking to Buddy Guy. An experience that I’ll never forget.
