TURN UP YOUR PC SPEAKERS TO HEAR STEVIE RAY VAUGHN's "PRIDE AND JOY"

Stevie Ray Vaughn - The Man Who Saved The Blues

Stevie Ray Vaughn, a lightning guitarist from Texas, came out big in the 1980s to revive the blues with his fiery riffs and in-your-face style of playing. His tributes to Jimi Hendrix are incredible, and his mastery of the blues is something that needs to be heard. If you like blues guitar then listen to ANY of his albums and you'll hear every great blues player of the past influencing his playing. His "Texas Flood" album will rock your world, and if you can - check out his video concerts - his live performances will make your jaw drop. SRV was a monster bluesman with a killer style and a voice full of soul that the world surely misses.
