Stevie Ray Vaughn Tribute
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=purPKiG5__A ^ | 8-27-10

Posted on 08/27/2010 6:22:28 PM PDT by FrdmLvr

I've had this urge to watch SRV and Rory Gallagher videos all day, which is what I've been doing, and I started thinking, 'seems like it's about the anniversary of Stevie Ray Vaughn's death....damn!

Oct. 3, 1954 - Aug. 27, 1980.

Voo-doo Child

Amazing. I'll bet you'll never forget that night.

Alpine Valley is a nice venue if I remember correctly. I saw Joni Mitchell there in the late 70's.

Don’t you love how he dresses? Who could pimp out like that and totally pull it off like SRV? No one.

I think he died in a plane crash or a helicopter crash as he was leaving a concert at Alpine Valley. The aircraft hit some power lines. I think that’s what happened.

Thanks for the information. That is so sad. I just bought one of his CDs.

Pat Metheny is great, he’s the same age as SRV would have been - AND ME! - that’s how I remember. We’re under 60. LOL! But Pat Metheny is jazz/fusion. I’m actually more of a jazz fan, but who doesn’t love SRV?

“Sad to think of all the great musicians who have died after climbing into light aircraft.”

Indeed, that plus the entertainers who have died in car crashes

Very true but I think what people are missing is the Talented Voice. He could sing.

Look how big his hands in relation to the arm. The strings are very large too.

He had huge hands. He played extra heavy gauge strings with a 13 for the high E! (Hendrix used a 9)

MAN!!!! Thanks for that link. IMHO, SRV SMOKES Hendrix on any Hendrix tune he plays. SMOKES him. Just MHO.

Quite simply the greatest I’ve ever heard. He was unbelievable to watch. Talent beyond belief. His death was tragic.

Saw Rory at the Cow Town Ballroom in KC. I think the ticket was $2.00

Aw, shaddup. A miracle would be if SRV descended from the skies to play us just one more riff from Voodoo Child. :)

BTW, the signal-to-noise ratio here has changed quite a bit since i was here last. Just an observation. I couldn't even make an innocuous comment on a RonPaul thread without being sideswiped. Come to think of it... that's just like old times!
