    Ed Sullivan always had a stick up his ass when it came to rock stars

    If this is the footage the OP is referring too I am not sure it adds up. You do see Buddy adjusting the volume but his guitar is clearly audible and prominent in the mix. I think he is just fine tuning the volume as he plays like most guitarist but I wouldn't put it past Ed to do that.
