On August 27, 1990, Texas blues guitar extraordinaire Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a helicopter crash. He was at his peak of popularity, and adding to the adage that "the good die young".
I would rather let the music speak for itself... just want to say that SRV's legacy lives on, as being one of the main reasons blues was revived in the 80's, and how his guitar playing inspires millions of people to pick it up and start learning. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked him seventh among the "100 Greatest Guitar Players of All Time".
It has to be seen and heard to be believed. RIP Stevie!
