.......we lost, in my opinion, one of the greatest blues guitarists of all time.

Godspeed Stevie Ray Vaughan.

October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990 Age 35
Born: Dallas, TX Died: East Troy, WI

Below is a pic of me at SRV's grave site:

On August 26, 1990, a sold out concert of 30,000 at Alpine Valley Music Theater in East Troy, Wisconsin, featured an encore jam with Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan and Robert Cray. On August 27, shortly before 1 a.m., a helicopter carrying Vaughan en route to Chicago crashed within seconds after takeoff.

Four days later, funeral services were held at Laurel Land Memorial Park in the Oak Cliff area of Dallas, Texas, with over 1,500 people attending and 3,000 more outside the chapel. Brother Jimmie, mother Martha, and girlfriend Janna were in attendance. Among the mourners were Stevie Wonder, Buddy Guy, Dr. John, ZZ Top, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, and Nile Rodgers.
