Stevie played guitar on this masterpiece-Bowie saw him playing at the Montreux Jazz Festival and knew he wanted him.....
Lots of versions of SRV and Voodoo Child out there, so I chose a longer version for your enjoyment.
I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
Saw SRV several times. He is one of the greats for sure. Sad loss at such a young age.
IT. WAS. A. FUMBLE.
His cover of Jimi’s Little Wing is another favorite. He beat his demons and was taken away too soon
Our people are everywhere, Esto Dignus.
Here ya go, Mercy!
Love the barges on the Rhein in the background.
And some 3rd Stone From the Sun action too. Very nice. Gracias.
Most of the Greats were taken to soon either by over dose or plane crash...
A couple of adds here, AB:
SRV passed away on 8/27/90, I wrote a TIMH on him a couple years back:
It was Randy Rhoads we lost on this day in 1982, Ludwig Yards with the TIMH on his birthday a few years ago:
In for the remembrance for both, the music lives.
Hindsight is, and in, 2020
I saw SRV at the Jazzfest in May 1990. I'd never really listened much to him prior to that. Amazing show.
Nothing cleanses the soul like a no call pass interference.
Never had a chance to see him live, and I probably don't recall listening to much of him while he was with us.
I was in boot camp when he passed, there were a couple of guys who were big into music (both may have been from Texas, even) that were pretty busted up about hearing the news.
Picked up Texas Flood at some point after his passing, and I understood.
I misread the title. I thought it was about Steamy Ray Vaugn from South Park.
Working the frets at around the two minute mark.
Although and ironically not so guitar heavy.... #1 The House is Rockin’...for me. Pride and Joy #2
A lion sleeps in every man, dissatisfaction moves him, complacency keeps him asleep.
and another classic....
Enjoying daily the back to back ttun beatdowns.
another guitar legend, Dick Dale, joined the band a few days ago.
He sure did, '61...I saw the news yesterday.
Another legend, may he RIP:
saw him live a few times, even in his late 70's and multiple severe health issues he put on a great show each time, a unique talent with a unique style.
I prefer SRV's version of Little Wing over Jimi's because he doesn't ruin it with those atrocious lyrics.
This is true.
Cool story. I was a freshman at OU in 1985 - working on the campus radio station. A fellow dj also worked as a stage hand for Memorial Auditorium. He asked if I wanted to be a bouncer for the SRV and Fab T-bird concert, to which I quickly agreed to.
After the show, I was able to be back stage and talk with him. After he left, he had a carton of Vantage cigarettes that he forgot. I of course took them back to the dorm and smoked Stevie's cigs.
I saw the same show; amazing concert in that tiny venue! We were skulking around after the show trying to get a glimpse of the band and SRV when they left M-Aud. He came out the back door(wintertime?) wearing this amazing long fur coat.
Enjoy the wins over *ichigan, ....I still remember the dark days of the 1990's....
A nice little SRV jam....
This has to be one of my all-time favorite solo's. At times I don't even listen to what he is playing and simply watch what his hands are doing. RIP Stevie!!!

Best song hands down IMHO is "Life by the Drop"...
