I've always been a huge Stevie Ray Vaughn fan. His death was a tragedy.

Stevie Raye is dead? And Athan just reported he'd been cut too. Wow poor FDE I didn't know.

Especially considering he had just cleaned up and was playing crisprer and cleaner than he ever had.

No doubt. Seems like the great ones always die prematurely. I wonder if his brother is doing any good? Haven't heard anything about him in a great while.

Found the infamous SRV 'Lost Album' on internet the other day very raw.
Always have a collection of SRV works in car or work.

Jimmie Vaughans last album was probably his best solo work but it was largely ignored because he had changed labels and Artemis did a horrible job of marketing it. If you get a chance check it out as it is rock solid.

I'm a huge SRV fan. One of my biggest disappointments is not seeing him live. I had a chance to see him at the Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans but chose B.B. King instead using the rationale that B.B. was old, overweight and that SRV would be around for a while. You know that rest of the story.

Never saw SRV.

Saw BBKing in 2004 at the STL Arch for free 100 ft from stage.

Could have seen JimmyVaughn with Bonnie Raitt gave tickets to MIL
since leaving early for vacation trip next day....
They didn't even go.

Still kicking myself about that with the damn ex.Wife. Bitch

I got to see him playing out at Sandstone once (whatever they're calling it now). Good show, as Charlie Daniels said about Elvin Bishop "He ain't good looking but he sure can play".

One of my faves is SRV's lead guitar on Jennifer Warnes 'First We Take Manhattan' off her 'Famous Blue Raincoat' album. Most excellent.

Over the lunch hour I pulled out some Freddie King. It had been a while since I've listened to him but damn that man could play and was soulful to boot. He's my second favorite King behind Albert.

I'll have to check it out (JRV's last album). What was your favorite SRV tunes? Mine were:

With vocals - The Things That I Used To Do, Texas Flood, Tin Pan Alley, Pride and Joy (all time favorite), Honey Bee and I'm Cryin.

Instrumental - Rude Mood, Lenny, and Scuttle Buttin.

Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love is my favorite.

Little Johnny Taylor told us so long ago
What about the midnight cryin',
wo that cheatin' and lyin'
What about the price that will,
oh surely be paid
Those that gave up on love,
love will have it's day
I ain't givin' up on love

:thumb: We miss you SRV. I hope you're having a blast jammin' with Jimi, Albert, Robert and the like.

The cool thing about SRV was his ability to play not only Blues but he also had some Jazz guitar in his blood. Dude could positively do it all. And his tribute to Hendricks in Voodoo Chile was classic.

Damn you Demonpenz! Now I broke out my old 'Couldn't Stand The Weather' CD. :cuss: :)



Went down to Tin Pan Alley
See what was goin on
things were still hot down there
couldn't stay very long

It was the roughest place
I've ever been
All the people down there
Livin for their whiskey wine and gin......

If Texas disappeared in a big flood, it would create a great tourism harbor. Being a big gulf that's already inside the Gulf of Mexico would probably mean pretty calm waters. The cruise ships would love it.

Pride and Joy, Cold Shot and Texas Flood are my favorites.

Little Wing is by far my favorite instrumental.

I saw SRV play with The Who and The Fabulous Thunderbirds (Jimmie's group) in the AlamoDome in 1990. Awesome concert despite the cavernous venue. Unfortunately that was the only time I saw him live in person.

Cold Shot:

I really meant I was sorry
For ever causing you pain
You showed your 'ppreciation
By walking out anyway

And that's a cold shot darlin'
Yeeeeahhh that's a drag
That's a cold shot baby
We thought our love would last

The first house my parents ever owned was right next to a huge drainage ditch. No concrete or anything, just a big ol' ditch that was probably five feet deep and six to eight feet wide. It was so big that it had a real bridge over it that connected our neighborhood with civilization.

Thinking back, I'm a little surprised that they bought a house in that location when they had an 8 year-old boy in the house (me, for those of you with short attention spans). That ditch had sides that were so steep that I never climbed in because I knew I couldn't get out, and it was only about 20 to 30 feet (or less) from our front door.

Perhaps it was a strategy.
