“SRV is God 1956-1990″ – Stevie Ray Vaughan passed away 20 years ago today

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Arguably the greatest guitarist of all-time, Stevie Ray Vaughan died when the helicopter he was in crashed in East Troy, Wisconsin on August 27, 1990 just moments after takeoff at 1am.  He was 35.  I remember walking to class on Fry Street in Denton, TX on that morning and seeing the words “SRV is God – 1956-1990” written on the outside wall of the Flying Tomato and realizing that he had died. Thankfully his music and legacy live on.  Click his pic (right) to watch an epic version of “Texas Flood”.   Unbelievable.
