    Who loves Stevie Ray Vaughan?

    Fellow Foos,
    We are all often asked, 'What is your favorite type of music'? Mine happens to be The Blues since it involves the guitar and it is totally freaking Epic on all tone scales. Anyway, I purchased Martin Scorsese's collection of Stevie Ray Vaughan today at the local record shop. Although I've listened to all of the songs on this CD, Martin did an awesome job in this collection. The collection contains many live performances that I've never had an eargasim too before. It's an amazing collection folks and has pulled me away from the couch and allowed me to perfect my mad air guitar skillz tonight.

    Anyway, are there any fellow Foo Blues folks out there? Just ask'in? Oh, and I've been drinking all night long and having a great time. Thank God I'm out of Gasoline and matches

    His music? Yes.

    Shame that so many of the most talented musicians have met untimely ends.

    Yup. I was very lucky to see him in 89. I still have goose bumps thinking of the show.

    1987... even though the video is bad... this is still a whole new level of awesome.

    I was fortunate to see Jeff Healy play on several occasions and am sure that SRV was just as blown away as I was the first time I heard him play.

    I live in Austin, and living here, you have to like SRV and his works.

    He's one of those people who I would give anything to be able to go back in time and see him live. When it comes to guitarists, there's none better.

    saw him when he headlined a fall or springfest at SUNY Buffalo. Strange lineup. Cyndi Lauper was also on the bill.... SRV was simply amazing.
    sigless at the moment....

    I saw him in Saratoga in 1985. He was one talented dude, for sure.

    I couldn't drag a friend to see him one more time, I think it was that last summer, 'cause he was opening for Joe Cocker. I tried to tell him we didn't have to stay for that. Anyway, he was a mainstay of mid 80s festival circuit for sure.

    I swear my fave record of his was the last, w/ Jimmie, the Vaughan Bros record.

    His biography is well worth reading. His death was made even more tragic if you know that he finally was living a clean, happy, healthy life at the end.

    I marvel at his talent every single time I hear his guitar singing.

    If you don't like SRV you have no business listening to rock or blues music. Best friggin blues guitar player I ever heard, and one of the best overall players period.

    The 1983 El Mocambo show video is highly recommended. His peak, imo, and how refreshing is it to see three guys making solid live music in an age of quick cut edited videos and lip-synching, which was starting even back then?

    I find him to have been so impressive due to his making the most of the standard blues pentatonic runs, but perhaps more importantly, once he broke nationwide, his style was instantly recognizable and worthy imo of inclusion with existing blues institutions like Albert King, Buddy Guy, et al. In other words, unlike many fine blues players in the world, he imitated but in doing so made it his own style. That's not so easy to do. He definitely had a gift.

    Especially sad that he had turned things around and started getting healthy when he died. I was lucky to see him once, when he toured with Jeff Beck in '89.

    yes - you beat me to it. Very sad. He seemed really happy in the final months.

    It's a shame I really didn't know his music until after he died. There has been more than one time in the last 15 years or so I heard some song that took my breath away. Went to find out who in the world could make such heavenly music and it turned out to be SRV.

    I never saw SRV live. I did, however, see his brother Jimmy when he was with the Thunderbirds. They were pretty excellent, too.
