20 Years Ago Today We Lost Stevie Ray Vaughan

In my opinion one of the most tragic losses in rock and roll, an accident that didn't have to happen :(

I remember hearing the news. I was pregnant at the time and considered naming the baby either Stevie, Ray or Vaughan. Now that the future has been seen, I see how appropriate it would have been to name my son after someone who overcame a serious drug addiction and alcoholism.

Some of us can be examples about going ahead and growing, and some of us, unfortunately, don't make it there, and end up being examples because they had to die. I hit rock bottom, but thank God my bottom wasn't death.
Stevie Ray Vaughan

I do miss SRV a lot ! He is undoubtedly the "Blues revolutionist" in Rock History ! Nice post Barbara :)

Aug 9, 1989- Stevie Ray and Double Trouble played one of the best shows that I have had the pleasure to attend. Hard to believe that it's been 20 years since the accident.
