Stevie Ray Vaughan fused Blues and Rock and turned on a whole generation to the Blues. His fiery guitar playing
and aching voice showed a wide audience the depths of Blues passion. To Blues purists, he a rock player. To most other fans,
he's a Blues player. But everyone agreed that they dug it.
Stevie follwed his older brother Jimmie as a guitar player.
Jimmie became a popular Texas player and went on to form the Fabulous Thunderbirds, but Stevie wasn't far behind. The Austin,
Texas music scene attracted the young stringer and for years he honed his chops in some of the most legendary bars and clubs
in the country.
Stevie's manager got word to Mick Jaggar about this guitar phenomena and the good word soon spread.
When David Bowie hired Stevie as his guitar player, the world discovered him. He recorded his first major album in less than
one week at Jackson Browne's studio in Los Angeles. With a very impressed Browne picking up the tab.
