    According to Eric Clapton, John Mayer, and the late Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy is the greatest blues guitarist of all time. An enormous influence on these musicians as well as on Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck, he is the living embodiment of Chicago blues.

    Would you consider the audio edition of When I Left Home to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure if the audio version is better than the printed version. Having seen Buddy Guy perform in many different settings, I imagine his voice different than the audio of the Narrator. That having been said, Mirron Willis does not detract from the story.


    What other book might you compare When I Left Home to and why?

    None


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Mirron Willis?

    I would listen to another book narrated by Mirron Willis. He did a fantastic job with the details of the voice that made each character in the narrative distinctly different.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was indeed a book that I wanted to listen to all in one sitting if that was possible for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Buddy did a good job sharing his life with his audience. However, I found myself wanting more details or more of his life's tales. Especially more of the interpersonal experiences of the day to day, not just the life defining moments of his career.

    Great book for a lover of the blues!
