Eric Clapton will appear on the new album by his hero, renowned blues guitarist Buddy Guy.

Clapton guests on a song called “Every Time I Sing the Blues” from Guy’s forthcoming album Skin Deep, due for release on July 22.

Guy’s inventive guitar style is widely acknowledged to have influenced Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and the Rolling Stones in the early days of their career.

“Buddy Guy was to me what Elvis was for others,” said Clapton in an interview with Musician magazine in 1985.

“Buddy Guy is by far and without a doubt the best guitar player alive… If you see him in person, the way he plays is beyond anyone. Total freedom of spirit, I guess… He really changed the course of rock and roll blues.”

Already a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Guy worked as a session musician with Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson and Koko Taylor.

The album also features Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, both Grammy nominated blues artists, and Robert Randolph.
