The kid is good but the last time I saw Buddy Guy - last summer at Bluestock - Quinn Sullivan ruined the show. Buddy let him play for about 45 minutes and I while I appreciate Buddy taking him under his wing and helping him out, I really don't need to see or hear 45 minutes from a 12 year old who is really just good for his age. All the Derek fans will probably be upset now Hey, you have to be at least 15 like KWS, Jonny Lang, Joe Bonamassa and even Derek before I can take you seriously. LOL.

Truly though, the kid is talented and hopefully will turn into an excellent player and keep blues alive and moving forward, but I may never go see Buddy again if he always has Quinn with him (this was the second time in a row I saw Buddy with Quinn in tow.) if I'm shelling out the money for Buddy Guy, I want a full set of Buddy Guy. I'd pay maybe 10 bucks to see Quinn in a club once - after he turns 15 of course - and see how that goes.

Agreed (mostly at least). I saw Buddy last summer and Quinn was on stage for about a half hour which I thought was way too much. I understand Buddy is getting up there in age and maybe it's as much giving him a little mid-set break as it is promoting this talent he discovered, but I felt it took away from the show. That said, I did buy tickets to see Buddy again this summer, hoping Quinn isn't with him, but if he is I'll take a bathroom break or something at that point and still enjoy Buddy (especially with my 4th row seats!)

The kid was a good player (his singing...well...he sounds like a 12 year old...) but it was just a little bit of overkill of him. Bring him out for a song is fine or even have him open, but it just seemed to drag on and on. A lot of people left during this part of the show.

I was covering Bluestock for American Blues News so I asked a lot of people about the set with Quinn and not one thought it was worth the 40-45 minutes. At a festival like that they could have given him his own set on the small stage and people could have checked him out voluntarily. I would have checked him out and I'm sure most attendees would have too, but to be force-fed that much was wrong. And, I really think he has no business singing. I could hear the guitar playing and not guess it was a kid but a 12 year old singing blues just seems wrong.

Couldnt agree more, I saw Buddy about 3 or 4 years ago when he toured with George Thorogood. Quinn was on stage for about half of Buddy's set then also. I think this was the first time he was bringing him around. From what I can tell he has been on every tour with him since.
I think this kid is a permanent with buddy now while he continues to tour. I love buddy but i will not go see him again if he brings Quinn along with him. I am surprised Buddy didn't sneak him in for the White House Blues performance.
Like everyone said no disrespect, he is a great player for his age but I did not pay to see him. Especially when I am paying $75+ for a ticket.

I will agree about the Quinn overkill, however, if Quinn isn't there you get five or ten more songs that Buddy starts and never finishes.

Which is worse?

I've been seeing Buddy live since the mid-90's when I lived near Chicago so I expect to hear snippets of songs but I see that as part of Buddy's charm. He does finish a lot of songs, more than people make it seem but less than many people might enjoy. I go to see the man rip it up on guitar and finished song or not he supplies that in mass quantities. So my vote goes for Buddy. Plus I'd rather hear half of a great song than all of a mediocre song sung by a 12 year old.

I personally will take Buddy Guy anyday....if he needs a spell, let Rick Hall smoke up the air...that young man has been with Buddy for years, and now it shows. And he is also a great guy. Met him after a show about 3-4 yrs ago, He's a helluva picker and good people...that's just my .02
