RIP STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In the early 80′s, the Blues had dropped from popular view again, but nobody did more to pick it up and shove it in people’s faces than Stevie Ray Vaughan. His bold fiery leadership of power trio Double Trouble invited comparison with Hendrix, but his deep empathy for the Blues made guitar heroes and old-school legends united in their praise.There are not many eight-year-olds who can pick out a Jimmy Reed song on a half size guitar, but Stevie Ray could. His dad bought him a Sears guitar, and his big brother Jimmie gave the kid a role model, by playing Rockin’ Texas Roadhouse Blues in the local bars.

  Jimmie also left his Blues records lying around for his kid brother to learn to copy, so Stevie Ray was exposed to the Delta and Chicago legends as well as more contemporary players like Buddy Guy and Jimi Hendrix. In the early 70′s, brother Jimmie was getting a local reputation with his band The Fabulous Thunderbirds, so Stevie Ray followed him by leaving school to form The Cobras, who played bars around the student scene in Austin. In 1975 he formed Triple Threat, and when singer Lou Ann Barton left in 1978, Stevie Ray took over vocals and they changed the name to Double Trouble. His abrasive tone and that laconic Texas drawl hidden down in his delivery gave Stevie Ray’s voice a unique and authentic Blues quality.”

” NEW ORLEANS 1987 – THE TWO BROTHERS STEVIE AND JIMMY PLAYING “PIPELINE” ON THE SAME DOUBLENECK GUITAR, SIMPLY INSANE:)
SRV ROCKS!..AS USUAL AND THEY PLAY A GUITAR WITH LEFT HANDED NECKS ON A RIGHT HANDED BODY… STEVIE’S STYLE;) 
THIS IS FROM A STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN & DOUBLE TROUBLE CONCERT ON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVERBOAT “S.S. PRESIDENTE” AT THE NEW ORLEANS JAZZ & HERITAGE FESTIVAL MTV MARDI GRAS – FEB 28, 1987

  Something interesting about the guitar they play in the video: “Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Vaughan owned and played a custom Stratocaster-shaped double-neck guitar named “Family Guitar”, built by Robin Guitars of Houston, Texas. This guitar had two maple necks, each with a different scale length and a pointy “drooped”-style reversed headstock with locking machine heads and was equipped with Rio Grande single-coil pickups. The latter is tuned an octave higher than a standard guitar, producing a sharper sound similar to that of a mandolin.” From answers.com “

Twenty Three years ago today we lost a GIANT

 

 Stevie Ray Vaughan, blues guitarist, dies in a helicopter crash at 35

 

Allmusic:

  “With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the ’80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert KingOtis Rush, and Muddy Waters and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre.Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late ’60s. For the next seven years, Stevie Ray was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence in blues and American rock & roll.”
