  • A Look Back at the Life and Death Of SRV!

    Afterward, David Bowie asked to meet them and invited Stevie Ray to play on his next album. Jackson Browne jammed with them and hearing they didn’t have a record contract, offered free time in his studio to cut a demo.

    Bowie’s new album turned out to be “Let’s Dance,” with Stevie Ray playing blistering solos on several songs, including the title track.
    Stevie Ray Vaughan always burned the candle at both ends. Then he started in on the middle.A booze-and-coke habit wasn’t unusual among musicians. But the depth of Vaughan’s worried even Muddy Waters, a sly veteran still singing “Champagne and Reefer” in his 70s.

      I saw Stevie Ray, back in the late '70's, I think, at some club in Austin. I thought he was very talented and I told my friends that he'd be really good, if he didn't play so loud. He was so much louder than the rest of the band. At the time I saw him, he wore a beret and wasn't well known outside of the Texas music scene.
