Buddy had been a steady feature on the South Side Blues Scene in Chicago for years. Him and his brothers Walter (gtr) and Howard (voc) were the "World Band", the Tyrone Davis Background for years. His son Hollywood took it over and is leading the Platinum band now.
Buddy was a nice man always willing to help everybody. He could sing and dance and play the guitar like hardly anyone in Chicago - going through all styles from Blues, Jazz and especially R&B.
