Biography

Buddy Whittington (born 28 December 1956, in Fort Worth, Texas) is an American guitar player. 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 (band), a band that he would later join, replacing rhythm guitar player Kim Davis. During the early 80’s, 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 fill in. In Mayall’s band Whittington also sings occasionally and contributes to songwriting. 2008 saw the release of his first solo album. He lives in Hurst, Texas with his family.

Buddy Whittington usually plays a 1963 Stratocaster plugged into a Dr. Z amplifier. He also plays a Lentz guitar modeled partially after the Fender Telecaster, but which is a different guitar.

    I still remember how much I enjoyed his play during John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers' concert in Warsaw, Poland. James Bond Theme intro was delightful!
