I just finished Buddy Guy's book- fucking awesome !!! His section about Stevie Ray vaughn is gut wrenching.   You Tube has a vid of Stevie's last song ever wit h Buddy, Jimmie Vaughn, and Clapton    - they are literally  in awe

There are so many. Once you get into the Stevie Ray Vaughan youtube section  you suddenly realize it is 3 AM

I remember the first time stevie ray came to my attention was as a teen late at night flipping through the channels and I came across a concert video. Not exactly sure what it was from, but if my memory is correct I think he was playing a small concert on a boat--maybe a steamship on the Mississippi. As an aspiring guitarist he just completely blew me away.

Have a quiche, now, or maybe a tort.  You deserve it!

I like to keep things simple, even if it's faaaken painful and miserable.
