I have seen Buddy Guy at least 3 times and he hardly ever finishes a song and/or goofs around alot? Does anybody know why?

I've seen him 5 times and have grown weary of the same thing. Last time I saw him, he went to leave the stage but then suddenly decided to play one more. He played a little bit of the song, then left. No encore. A bit frustrating.

Uhh, I think it's called transendence. Or send you into a dense trance. Whatever you call it, Buddy still got it!

I stopped going to see him because of this. Way too much flash, not enough serious blues. he goes out in the audience forever. It's good for a few minutes, not 20. I come to see him play and sing, not screw around.

I think that's what makes Buddy original. He does it to put on a great show. If you dumb people show up to hear a song played just the way it is on the album then you obviously miss the point of what playing the blues is about.
B.B. King doesn't just sit and play a bunch of songs, he likes to tell stories along with those songs. That's the kind of show he puts on.
If you just want to hear a bunch of songs then don't waste your money, stay home, and just listen to your albums. Otherwise enjoy the SHOW. IT'S ROCK AND ROLL.

Because Buddy has the status to do that: he is one of the last icons of the Chicago Blues, he made a bunch of unforgettable records and he still is, at 74, one of the top guitar players around. Last time I saw him in concert, I tried to get his signature on one of his most recent CDs, I was regularly accredited in the backstage and he was going to call the security because I bothered him ... Said that, in my opinion, "Sweet Tea" is easily the best blues record since the beginning of the new century.

I think Buddy's best work was his Vanguard Recordings from the mid 60's. I think he is more of a 'showman' now, and deservedly so. He is one of the last links to the delta. He has paid his dues. What he is currently doing for 14 year old prodigy, Quinn Sullivan, is so gracious. God Bless Buddy Guy!
