  • Happy Birthday Stevie Ray Vaughan

    In celebration the life and music of a Blues guitar master and icon.

    Stevie Ray Vaughan impacted the Blues as we know it today as much as
    any other artist in his thirty-five years of life and his influence on current and future
    generations of guitar players is simply massive.

    Something  a little special in honor of Stevie Ray's birthday since there is
    so much great video of him.  Three full concerts! Enjoy!

    "You see, we are here, as far as I can tell, to help each other; our brothers, our sisters, our friends, our enemies. That is to help each other and not hurt each other." - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Awesome Moose. Awesome post for an Awesome player. Saw Stevie at Fitzgeralds in Houston for three bucks. He was just as awesome four years later for 35 bucks, again, here in Houston. He always pulled out everything he had and gave it to us. I will always miss him, his playing, his humility. He lives on in his music, which is probably just alright with him.

      SRV was the one that made me want to play lead guitar. I cried when I heard about the crash.

        I went in a big circle in terms of respect for his playing. First I was blown away and couldn't believe the way he made the guitar sound, then I got saturated and thought all of his stuff sounded the same, then years later after listening to a million players and evolving as a player myself I have a huge respect for the way he just OWNED a Strat and consider him one of the greats.
