Musician. He was the younger brother of legendary bluesman Buddy Guy, who made his own mark as a respected guitarist and band leader. In the 1960s, he relocated to Chicago and joined his brother's band as a full-time musician. During the blues revival of the 1970s, the Guy brothers toured through America, Europe and were on the Festival Express Tour across Canada with Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and The Band. Besides playing with brother Buddy, he also backed up Raful Neal, Junior Wells, Son Seals, Albert Collins, Koko Taylor, Memphis Slim, John Lee Hooker and Big Mama Thornton. In the 1990s, he formed his band "Phil Guy and The Chicago Machine", signed a record contract and began touring as a front man. His albums included "Tina Nu" (1994), "Breaking out on Top" (1995), "Say What You Mean" (2000) and "Here's My Blues Brother" (2006), recorded with Buddy Guy.
