R.I.P. Stevie Ray Vaughan

Stevie Ray Vaughan No1 by essenceofus

Today is the 20th anniversary of the helicopter crash that ended Stevie Ray Vaughan’s life. One of the most talented musicians and performers of all time, he lives in the hearts of many Texans, and others all over the world who continue to love his music.
Mom met him and played pool with him several times. One of our best friend’s little boy wouldn’t fall asleep to anything but Stevie Ray when he was a newborn. I remember watching PBS specials of “Austin City Limits,” and marvelling at his guitar skills and raspy voice as a kid. I still stop and watch those specials when they come on.
