"It's a beautiful day," exults Buddy Guy. He's sitting in a hotel room in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, and can't get over how nice it is outside. "This is the first sunshine day I think I've seen since I've been out on tour," he explains over the p"But it's beautiful here today. I've got my window open and it feels like the spring out there -- right around 60 degrees. You can't beat that with a hammer and nail."Seeing as the bluesman's latest album is called "Feels Like Rain," you might think he'd be happier with rainy weather.

"The Kennedy Center Honors" is one of the nation's great TV treasures. And while this year's show is a little uneven, the high points still make it one of my favorite TV viewing experiences of the year. Maybe you have to be a little older to appreciate this annual production on some levels. If you grew up with TV in the 1950s and '60s, the golden age of variety shows hosted by such stars as Judy Garland and Danny Kaye, you can appreciate "Kennedy Center Honors" as the last, great variety show on television.

When Buddy Guy, a sharecropper's son, first ventured forth from his native Louisiana, he could not have foreseen the day he would be motoring through the Windy City in his beige Rolls-Royce or red Ferrari.He marvels at that from his home in Chicago, where he gives interviews to magazines and newspapers all over the world, discussing his two Grammy Award-winning records and the coveted Century Award, presented by Billboard magazine.But that is now. Earlier, it was Magic Sam and Otis Rush -- two older West Side blues giants -- who in the 1950s recognized Mr. Guy's talent and guided him to the record labels that would jump-start his career.

The Windy City has long served as the Blues Capital of the world. Since the 1920s, its clubs and streets have been the proving grounds for new talent and the stomping grounds for the masters. The proliferation of resident talent, much originally from the deep South, rivals any in the world.Many of the Chicago blues clubs feature first-class acts every night of the week. Household names like Buddy Guy and Otis Rush share the limelight with obscure but talented singers and instrumentalists who might any day make their debut on local record labels such as Alligator, Delmark and Earwig -- to name three that enjoy international distribution.

CHICAGO -- Outside Buddy Guy's Legends, the hip Southside blues club and shrine, the faithful line 200 deep along rain-soaked Wabash Avenue. TV news crews briefly bathe the sopping mass of humanity in light, bringing forth profound utterances like "Stones rule!" Limos pull up one after another, each arrival prompting the inevitable question:Could it be? The Rolling Stones?Call it Stones Watch, this obsession that took hold with the 50-something British rockers' arrival here for the opening of their "Bridges to Babylon" tour at Soldier Field this week.
