Stevie Ray Vaughan on Life

Stevie Ray Vaughan

 Twenty three years ago today, Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a tragic helicopter crash at Alpine Valley Music Theater in East Troy, Wisconsin  (about 40 miles from Milwaukee, Wisconsin).  Vaughan was touring as a warm-up act for Eric Clapton.

 During a finale to the Clapton set,  an ensemble that included Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, Buddy Gray and Jimmie Vaughan were introduced as "the best guitar players in the entire world" and invited them onstage to jam with Clapton to play "Sweet Home Chicago."

 The thoughts which Stevie Ray Vaughan shared after dealing with his substance abuse problem paired with his tragic death is a reminder about the preciousness of life.
