Many of the younger folks here won’t remember him or even know who he is.
Thirty years ago, August 27, 1990, we lost one of the great rock/blues guitarists and singers. Stevie Ray Vaughan’s chopper crashed after a performance in Wisconsin. Fortunately, Eric Clapton (which whom he was perfoming) was on another chopper.
I loved Stevie Ray, and had seen him live on two occasions in Dallas. I was devastated when I heard this news, and am still sad when I think about it. I have a couple of his CDs, which I will be playing all day in his honor.
Rock/blues may not be your thing, but you have to admit he was damned good at it. Oddly, as good as he was, he couldn’t read a lick of music.
