I didn't listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan's music until years after he died, since then he's become my favorite guitar player. His playing seemed so natural and effortless. Thank you for posting a reminder about him.

Seems like yesterday

There was a soulfulness to his music, a sadness that made his guitar-playing far more expressive and emotive than any words.

In the 80s I'd argue the two most well known blues-rock guitarists were George Thorogood and Stevie Ray Vaughan. And the two could not have been more different.

It's like the classic theater masks-- comedy and tragedy. Thorogood wore the comedy mask, and Vaughan wore the tragedy mask.

Just painted him for charity, and did a double album piece too to go to Austin.

Peace.

Rest in Peace Stevie. We miss ya.

It does seem like yesterday. Imagine if Clapton had gotten on that copter.
