Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954)

Vaughan's career as a professional musician was tragically cut short when he was killed in a helicopter crash in 1990, but in the short time he spent in the industry, he helped inspire a blues-rock revival and secured his reputation as one of the greatest guitarists of all time. His trio's 1989 album In Step won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album, as did the posthumously released Family Style, featuring Vaughan and his brother Jimmie. What was Vaughan's "first wife"? More...

He died in a helicopter crash.

It seems like quite a few celebrities die in some type of crash.

And he used to do a quarter ounce of cocaine per day...whew!

I could start posting song links and never stop. Such beautiful phrasing. One of the greats, sorely missed.

Nobody rocked the blues so raw as Stevie Ray. He played incredible passion and energy into every tortured note.

Here's an emotionally moving track that the great Buddy Guy wrote as a tribute to his late friend and fellow axeman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-18352B7fc

Another plain crash, seems like if your in the music business, it's best to take the train. Sad, and a great loss o the world.

Thanks for that, Abs. I adore Buddy Guy ( he sang happy birthday to me once ) , but this track seems odd to me. It's like Buddy's trying to play Stevie's style, Chicago playing Texas. Stevie always had those little run-offs that need a really light hand, which isn't Buddy's style. Beautiful nonetheless.

I would venture to guess that Stevie had some favorite Buddy Guy riffs, maybe the chicken cluck for example, and vice versa...and, that Buddy's tribute blends the two.
That's only my theory but if you ever get him to sing you happy birthday again, please ask and let me know.

So, how in the world is it that you garnered the favor the Blues Gods to occasion such a performance from Mr. Guy?
That's equivalent to having a lap dance from Kate Beckinsale.

He was playing the Brunswick House in T.Dot. My friends took me there for my birthday ( I love my friends ) et voila ! Kate never showed.
