Quinn Sullivan, 14-Year-Old Blues Prodigy,
Impresses the Masters

'Players like him come along once in a lifetime,' says Buddy Guy 

In the last few years, Guy has invited Sullivan onstage for several high-profile gigs, including sitting in with B.B. King, playing Connecticut's Gathering of the Vibes festival and joining Keith Richards and Clapton at Hubert Sumlin's memorial concert at the Apollo Theater. Sullivan even played on Guy's 2008 album, Skin Deep. Guy admits he's received some backlash: "[Some media] think you're not a blues player until you hit 100 years old," says Guy. "That's the crap I've been getting about Quinn: he's too young to play the blues, but that's what they said about me when I joined Muddy Waters' band! If you listen to him, you'll have a different attitude."
