Re: Stevie Ray Vaughn

He has a natural ability and just like all the greats was taken from us before his time, why does that happen, and all the bad people seem to live on and on:(

Helicopters, Aeroplanes, Motorbikes, fast cars...all very dangerous ways to travel...

Re: Stevie Ray Vaughn

Jimmie Vaughn was always a pain in the ass regarding populairity, and it was kinda of a shame to watch him try to push Stevie Down.

The reality was, Stevie could play him under the table any day.

Oh yeah, SRV could beat the **** out of Jimmie... however I never heard Stevie say that, numerous times I saw him say in interviews that Jimmie was one of the best guitarists he'd ever heard.

He was a good brother.

Re: Stevie Ray Vaughn

During this set, SRV was really pumped up, and he played out the concert , despite the pouring rain.

Stevie was wild...he was as white as a ghost. After the concert, we went down to 6th street in Austin, and who shows up?...Stevie and his crew.

I can attest to seeing some crazy behavior, and remember being carted home. I know Stevie was doing nose candy at this time, but he seemed to be in control. I got my drum stick from Chris Layton that night, and Tommy Shannon gave me a bottle of Scotch (which I detest).

Anyways, i Will never forget partying with SRV and his crew,.

Re: Stevie Ray Vaughn

Before I go, I thought I might add that Stevie Ray was perhaps the most resigned and humble players I have seen. His humility and dedication is something to take note of. God Bless Ya Stevie.
