Chicago blues legend Buddy Guy canceled two performances in Japan on his doctor's orders.

Guy turned 75 on Saturday. The nature of his ailment has not been revealed, but Guy's spokesperson said it's a common condition.

The blues musician is still scheduled to show up at his birthday party Sunday at his club, "Legends" on South Wabash.
