    He’s instrumental version of “Little Wing” is one of the rare occurrences where the cover is better than the original. Sooo much soul <3

    Had the pleasure of seeing him live a couple years before that tragic day.

    You could tell when he got the cursed strat. Jimi’s trapped soul in it. His time was limited. Rest in piece. That and 9/11 are the only two things were i remembered i was when it happened. My boss was obsessed with Stevie.

    God he was fucking good at playing guitar. Pretty much better at what he did than most other legends at what they do.

    That might be one of Stevie’s Tokai guitars he picked up in Japan.

    Saw him in 86. Saratoga. Small crowd. Came out with a big feather boa on his white hat, you’ve seen the pictures. Incredible show. Played voodoo chile with so much feedback from his amps. Amazing. He played his feedback like an instrument. Then saw him in 89. Same place, Saratoga. Another great show. Had more original songs. Incredible.

    B.B. King called Stevie Ray Vaughan “the whitest black guy I’ve ever known.”

    I used to go to Alpine Valley for a two or three night concert runs. We always stayed at the resort where his helicopter took off from. After everybody passed out (I’m a night-owl) I would grab whatever bottle of alcohol and hike half way up the ski hill by myself and have a few for the man. Absolute legend.
