Double Birthday! Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert Collins!

Stevie Ray Vaughan (SRV) was born on this day in 1954, and Albert Collins was born on Oct. 1 (excuse my delay) in 1932.

Each blues legend added his own touch to the genre; SRV for his sheer brilliance in guitar technique and Collins for his unusual guitar setup (open F minor tuning?!) and feel.

And, both are from Texas!!

So I thought to celebrate why not show a video of them playing together, with another blues legend, BB King?!

Happy birthday boys, hope you're jamming up in heaven!
