Ruddy Guy: Gimmicks

for the

believers

By LITTLE SHERRI FUNN
Jail Expert
I'm not sure if I trust a lot
of the people who went to see the
Buddy Guy Blues Band at Canter-
bury House last night. I have
this sneaking suspicion that when
things got rough and a person
needed everybody around him he
could get, they would be home
ironing their striped pants.
But that's them, and you can
see them every day around town,
so let's talk about the Buddy Guy
Blues Band, which you can't see
every day.
Buddy Guy's most important
facet is not his music, but his
show. He really has his' show down
pat, man, and the people eat it
up.
He pumps his legs constantly
like he's riding a bicycle while
he plays and sings. He holds his
guitar over his head, behind his
back, on the floor, etc., etc., etc.,
all the while playing his riffs. He
moves his body continuously the

whole time he's on stage, rarely
giving the audience a chance to
catch its breath or slip into dis-
traction.
His material is the stuff they
come to hear: "Watermelon Man,"
"Crazy 'Bout my Baby," and "I
Feel Good." He makes his guitar
wolf whistle and the people go
wild. He plays with one hand and
the people go wild.
He entertains the people.
I think that when Buddy Guy
plays for an audience that does
not swallow all of the gimmickry
his music probably improves. Gen-
erally, if you show a real blues-
man that you're into what he is
doing on his instrument or with
his voice he'll work twice as hard
for you. B.B. King has to be the
prime example of that precept.
B.B. gives you the show if you
want it, but he can give you the
music too. I have yet to hear Bud-
dy Guy give us the music.
Undoubtably one of the prime
reasons for Guy's popularity

among the kids today is the emer-
gence of Eric Clapton and Jimi
Hendrix as "musical" pacesetters.
Both of these men have gotten
away from their music and into an
emphasis on form, rather than
content. The album buyer today
usually buys the form that ap-
peals to him or is considered con-
temporary by the media (Life,
Time, Hit Parader, Billboard) and
by his friends. This scene is some-
what analogous to the political
one, where a particular candi-
date's form and profile is all that
matters, and his content, what
he's REALLY getting at, is for-
gotten.
As a result, Wheels of Fire is
the number one album in the
country, while several creatively
superior and more honest efforts
remain near the bottom of the
charts. And what's more and twice
as startling to all of the people
buying The Fifth Estate, their
sitting down while they watch the
groups instead of dancing is only

contributing to this "hollow"
music.
The people sitting down, sitting
like they did at Canterbury House
last night, are emphasizing the
form by making it harder for the
performer to remain honest with
them. It's obvious now that a lot
of people who were not around for
Gary 'U.S.' Bonds and don't have
much perspective are buying a lot
of bad albums and will dig almost
anything a smart man like Buddy
Guy dares to throw at them. Too
bad.
The high point of Guy's first
set last night was when he left
the bandstand, wandered into the
men's room, and stayed inside for
two minutes, playing all the while.
The people went wild.
* * *
It was announced last night
that Buddy Guy will play at the
benefit Monday night in the Union
Ballroom, with or without his
band. He might just jam with
whoever else is there.
