Story has it Buddy 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 14 Buddy 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, a band that he would later join, replacing rhythm guitar player Kim Davis. During the early 1980s, 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 take his place in the band. In Mayall's band Whittington also sings occasionally and contributes to songwriting. 2008 saw the release of his first solo album and extensive touring in Europe.
When people hear Buddy for the first time the most common words are “Wow! Incredible! Awesome!.........well you get the idea. Don’t miss this great opportunity to see a guitar legend up close and live.
