GONE TOO EARLY BUT LEFT SUCH A LEGACY

Our weekend triple-shot goes to simply one of the greatest blues-rock singer-guitarist-songwriters of all-time, Mr. Stevie Ray Vaughan. Not many evoked Hendrix, Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters and other touchstone guitarists and vocalists with such resounding authority and individual stamp. His music transcends even the finest superlatives so we'll let it speak for itself.

Absolutely! SRV was, and still is, one of the greatest guitar-slingers ever.
He brought the music back from the 80's demise...saved the blues. Only a very few
players can come into his kitchen...

40 years of seeing live music and one of my greatest moments was seeing Stevie and Jeff Beck doing Going Down.

I saw him open for the Who in the Astrodome.

Brother Jimmy came out and they played some stuff from the upcoming "Family Style".

I sure miss Stevie.

I only saw him once, too, at his Birthday Bash in Austin in 1983 right after Texas Flood came out. He's one of a kind, and stopped me in my tracks the first time I heard him play. I know he drew heavily from bluesmen before him, but he's still my second favorite guitar player, and possibly my favorite entertainer. I'm stoked that I saw him the one time I did.

I lived in Austin for 3 years, and could have seen Stevie Ray play all the time. I knew people who knew him. But we had a very small child, and we were homebodies at the time. One of the few times we did go out was the one time I saw Stevie Ray. The moral of the story, to me, is go see them while they are alive. Get a babysitter, borrow some money, do whatever you need to do to see your music heroes when you have the chance. They may not always be around.

I was lucky enough to see SRV around 10 times between '83 and 90. First time was at the Beacon Theater with the Outlaws in December 83, then My Father's Place in Roslyn in April 84 and then at Nassau College in May of 84. I was in the college concert staff and blew off classes the day he played the school. The sound check was amazing. Stevie, Chris and Tommy came out, played one song and then Tommy and Chris left the stage and Stevie stayed on and played another 20 minutes in front of me and like two other people!!! When he was done, I was lucky enough to get him to sign my "Texas Flood" album and get a pic with him. That album and pic hangs in my home to this day. I remember seeing him with Gregg a few times at the Pier in NYC and the last time was with Joe Cocker at Jones Beach a month before he died. As far as his live shows go, he always played a song of two you never heard him play before and he would also change the way he played some of the better knowned tunes from time to time as well. One of the best ever.
