    It was a loss but, just think, it could've been Clapton instead.

    RIP Stevie.

    Cause Clapton lucked out and gave his seat to SRV. He should have been on the chopper instead. I believe some of his people were. The chopper was for him.

    Same thing happened with Waylon. He was playing bass for Buddy Holly and he gave his seat on the plane to the Big Bopper.

    Sometimes a kindly gesture gets someone killed and saves your own ***, I suppose.

    "He could play a guitar just like ringing a bell"

    Have you seen the old Canadian tv show with SRV & Jeff Healey? It's not the best recording, but it was Jeff Healey's first tv performance.

    One of my favorite performances:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9Bv3fCAPGU"]Stevie Ray Vaughan - Tin Pan Alley Montreux 1985 part1 - YouTube[/ame]

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exrili0c1b8"]Stevie Ray Vaughan - Tin Pan Alley Montreux 1985 part2 - YouTube[/ame]

    Tune to 0:35 of part 2 if you want to watch Johnny Copeland forget the words when he steps up to the mic again.

    Must be for the same reason Hendrix and Rhoades also did.

    No, actually. IIRC, SRV had cleaned himself up when his chopper crashed.

    Stevie broke the first rule of reformed rock stars; he got in a helo/plane/bus driven by a guy smoking weed all day.

    Me, I wouldn't have gotten within 100 yards of a helo. Drive myself to every event too.

    He was amazing. Those Austin City Limits shows were fantastic.

    Just here to say...Stevie had Style!

    I saw him twice here in Dallas at the Bronco Bowl in the mid 80's The man was GREAT live. You never wanted the shows to end.
    RIP SRV

    For the record...no drugs involved.
    Continued VFR flight into IFR conditions in rising terrain.
    True...he didn't have to die.

    SRV's death was tragic, but he lived and went out like a true blues legend. Sank deep into drugs and alcohol, "paid his dues", got clean and cut one of the best albums of his life (In Step) before he went.

    RIP Stevie.
