Stevie Ray Vaughan – 19 Years & Still MissedBy
For some reason, at the time of Stevie’s death, I was unfamiliar with his music, yeah, I heard him on the radio, but did not pay much attention.
I will tell you though, I remember exactly where I was and who I was with. The who I was with, I’d much rather leave out of this post, but I was at Kelsey Road House in Lake Barrington having lunch.
I heard the breaking news, and said, “wow, my husband always talked about seeing him at Poplar Creek, and he was phenominal, Buck will miss him.
After that, his music and his soul came into my life in a powerful way. My passion for drawing Stevie is something I doubt will ever die. I have become friends with someone who knew him personally and the guy opened his life and his generosity to me in more ways than I can tell you about.
If you haven’t spent the money, go check out – You Can’t Stop a Comet by Cutter Brandenburg. This is by far worth the money and it’s written in Texas hick and chaulked full of awesome pictures.
Thanks Cee !
Watching Stevie video’s you will see the passion he had for music and playing guitar, I understand that he had this passion about life and people as well. Dedicated to friends and family and dedicated to his fans.
Would Vaughan have continued on a course of fame? Some say no, I have to believe for some reason he was leant to us for the short amount of time to impact us. 19 years later and local radio stations here in Chicago on a daily basis play his shattering blues tunes. 19 years later, his name is known worldwide, 19 years later people still debate if he was better than Clapton – The answer to that last question is – by far in my opinion as a musician and a person.
19 years after his demise, Stevie Ray Vaughan and his legacy are still alive and well in many hearts. To quote Cee – “Stevie knows your passion for music”
In June of this year, another Vaughan went to heaven to hear the angels sing, his mother passed away. 4 years prior to Stevie’s death in 1990 – his father died on the same day of August 27th..
Pump up the volume and listen to what Stevie has to say, his spirit lives within each of us through every cord recorded..
