Remembering Stevie Ray 

By Joe Rock

 

August 27th 1990 the world lost one of it’s greatest guitarists when a helicopter crashed and took the life of Stevie Ray Vaughan.

I saw Stevie Ray live a few times and he truly was amazing.

I remember seeing this clip above as it happened live on TV.

It is Stevie and his brother Jimmy doing the surf guitar classic “Pipeline” together on the same doubleneck guitar.

Below is a video of one of my favorite songs of his “Life By The Drop” and more.

We miss you Stevie.
