    Cool thread!

    I was lucky enough to meet Doug Sahm once. A close friend of the family was having a BBQ, and unbeknownst to me, Sahm had been invited. (Sorry, can't give more details :D)

    He was one of the most down to earth cats I have had the pleasure to meet. Very humble, and he was incredibly gregarious.

    As Squidbilly said, it's kinda hard to pigeonhole the style of his music. I think that's why I love his music so much. There is an eccentric style of playing that courses through all his work. The blended styles help set the stage (in my opinion) for many regional crossovers, and helped establish him in Texas music history.

    The link below is for the Austin Chronicle issue that came out the week after he passed away.

    If so inclined. Scroll down to "Music" section, and there are several well written articles in his memory.

    I wonder what we would have got if He&Stevie Ray Vaughan would have collaborated on a few tunes?

    I know they rubbed elbows occasionally, but not too sure about musical work together. It would be a treat if some sessions were to appear from the past. Never know..:cheers2
