uy is also largely responsible for expanding the audience idea that blues music is just "sad" songs.
One of his famous anecdotes:
"Once I was checking into a hotel, and a couple saw my ring with 'blues' on it. They said, 'You play blues. That music is so sad.' I gave them tickets to the show, and they came up afterward and said, 'You didn't play one sad song.'"
Guy was ranked No. 30 on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time and, as a house guitarist for the Chess label, can be heard on hits like "Killing Floor" by Howlin’ Wolf and "Wang Dang Doodle" by Koko Taylor.
A winner of six Grammys, Guy is also a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was awarded a National Medal of Arts and 23 W.C. Handy Awards, more than any other artist.
His 2013 release, "Rhythm & Blues," is his 27th album. The two discs feature guests like Kid Rock, Beth Hart, Keith Urban, Joe Perry and Gary Clark Jr.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "The Bachelorette" is sporting quite a rock on her ring finger. The ABC reality show ended its season last night with Kaitlyn Bristowe getting a proposal from Shawn Booth. He got down on one knee to pop the question and Kaitlyn said a teary-eyed "yes." Earlier, the other finalist, Nick Viall, was about to propose when Kaitlyn put her hand on the ring box and shot him down. In the limo ride away, Nick was cussing and threw the ring across the car. He and Kaitlyn had gotten intimate earlier in the season. Kaitlyn and Shawn say they're very much in love. They're also happy they can take their relationship public. But during the live reunion show, they didn't say anything about marriage plans.

BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN AUTOPSY
UNDATED (AP) -- We still don't know what killed Bobbi Kristina Brown. Medical examiners say their autopsy yesterday turned up no obvious cause of death. The Fulton County, Georgia, Medical Examiner's Office said in a statement that it will likely be several weeks before it can rule on a manner and cause of death for the 22-year-old. The next step is ordering lab tests and issuing subpoenas for documents -- most likely Brown's hospital records. The daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown died Sunday at a hospice center in the Atlanta area. She was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub about six months ago.

BILL COSBY APPEALS RULING THAT UNSEALED DEPOSITION EXCERPTS
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Bill Cosby's lawyers are still trying to keep the comic's testimony in a 2005 lawsuit private. The attorneys filed an appeal yesterday, in a decision to unseal Cosby's testimony that he got quaaludes to give women before sexual encounters. The newly public court filings contain excerpts of Cosby's deposition in that case and were unsealed on a bid by The Associated Press. The full deposition has since been released by a court reporting service and contains Cosby's only testimony under oath about accusations he sexually assaulted a string of women. Cosby says the sexual encounters were consensual.
