The sky is still crying...


17 years ago today, my world, as well as that of many, many others changed, when the news came down that the one and only Stevie Ray Vaughan had died in a helicopter crash. He was a man of immense talent and skill, giving us more "pride and joy" than he could ever have imagined. I don't think I've ever seen anyone who enjoyed playing and performing as much as Stevie did, and he had the undying respect of every other blues musician out there, even the grizzled old veterans like BB King, Buddy Guy, and John Lee Hooker. Guitar God Eric Clapton stated that he was "in the presence of greatness" upon hearing Stevie play for the first time. So, with all the love and respect I can muster for this wonderful and talented musician, I say we still miss you Stevie. R.I.P., my friend...
