CHICAGO (AP) – Five-time Grammy Award winner Buddy Guy will have to find somewhere else to sing the blues.

The 70-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer announced during a recent show that his celebrated club, Buddy Guy’s Legends, has lost its lease and will have to move around June. Columbia College, the owner of the building that has housed the club since 1989, plans to build a student center on the site.

“This is a good spot and we hate to move,” club manager Brian Fadden said. “But we hope to not go very far.”

Columbia had extended the club’s lease through May, spokeswoman Micki Leventhal said.

“We are willing to be flexible so that he (Guy) can sign another place,” Leventhal said. “We don’t want to hurt him.”
