Buddy Whittington Biography (Wikipedia)

Buddy Whittington is an American guitarist. He began playing the guitar inspired by his sister's records of The Beatles, Rolling Stones and, in particular, John Mayall's Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton. At the age of 14 he was already a part of the Dallas/Fort Worth music scene and playing regularly in the clubs along Jacksboro Highway. While attending high school, Buddy played in a band called "Short Change" which opened for Point Blank, a band that he would later join, replacing guitar player Kim Davis. During the early 1980s, he formed and sang with his own band "The Sidemen". In 1991 they opened for John Mayall and when Coco Montoya left the Bluesbreakers in 1993, Mayall called him to take his place in the band. In Mayall's band Whittington sang occasionally and contributed to songwriting. When, after fifteen years, Mayall disbanded the Bluesbreakers Buddy Whittington continued to gig in Texas but also joined forces with Roger Cotton and Pete Stroud who had toured with Mayall as part of Peter Green's band. 2008 saw the release of his first solo album and he continues to tour regularly in the UK and throughout Europe, though Roger Cotton has left the band which now works as a threesome featuring Darby Todd on drums. In August 2013 Buddy Whittington sat in with his old boss John Mayall at the Bedford Blues Festival in Bedford, Texas. Buddy lives in Hurst, Texas with his family.
