This seemed like a timely selection for the Attic this morning. This past Monday marked the 22nd anniversary of the helicopter crash in Wisconsin that took away Stevie Ray Vaughan. That combined with the devastating floods happening in Texas, "Texas Flood" seemed appropriate...
On May 11, 1995, nearly five years after the helicopter crash that killed him, some of Stevie Ray Vaughan's talented peers united on a single stage to pay tribute to a life and career that ended too soon.
On January 29, 2013, Legacy Recordings will release a 30th anniversary edition of 'Texas Flood,' the debut album by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. The two-CD set will include a previously unreleased 1983 concert.
We lost Stevie Ray 22 years ago today!! Every weekday around 9:30, we pull one out of the attic. In case you are new, the Attic is a mythical place where we were “enlightened” by great music…and other stuff.
