Stevie Ray Vaughan

"Stephen ("Stevie") Ray Vaughan" (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990), born in Dallas, Texas, was an American blues guitarist, known as one of the most influential electric blues musicians in history. He is often referred to by his initials, "SRV".

Vaughan was born and raised in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, but dropped out of Kimball High School and moved to Austin to pursue music.

After playing in a series of bands, Vaughan formed the blues rock combo Double Trouble with drummer Chris Layton and bassist Jackie Newhouse in the late 1970s. Tommy Shannon replaced Newhouse in 1981. A popular local draw, Vaughan soon attracted attention from David Bowie and Jackson Browne, and played on albums with both. Bowie first caught Vaughan at the Montreux Jazz Festival where initially a few members of the audience, who disliked his hard blues sound, booed Vaughan during his first visit in 1982, though most of the crowd cheered him during his second visit in 1985, as can be witnessed in the "Live at Montreux" DVD. Bowie featured Vaughan on his ''Let's Dance'' album in the songs "Let's Dance", "Modern Love" and "China Girl".
