Stevie Ray Vaughan

I can't believe it has been 19 years since we lost Stevie. I don't remember the exact date, but I do remember where I was when I heard the news. What struck me was how cruel life can be. He cleans up his life and is beginning to peak when an accident cuts it all short. I never got to see him live (there was always next tour) and I will regret that forever. I still listen often and you hear him in so many players today. Now my son is a fan and I suspect that when he has one his son may be listening.

Stevie Ray Vaughan. One for the ages. Rest in Peace.

I always loved this version...

  1. 1990-08-26 was his last show, not sure if the copter went down before or after midnight though.
    Stevie is greatly missed indeed
