RIP Stevie Ray Vaughan - guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. Often referred to by his initials SRV, Vaughan is best known as a founding member and leader of Double Trouble. Born in Dallas
Stevie Ray Vaughan. Saw him with Double Trouble, July 11, 1981 at South Texas Tornado Jam, Manor Downs, Austin, with the Joe Ely Band, Delbert McClinton, and the Fabulous Thunderbirds. STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS AL KOOPER
"Number One" Acquired by Stevie in 1974 from Ray Hennig’s Heart of Texas Music, Austin, Texas. Price: $0; value now estimated at $1,000,000. Age: Number One was disassembled by Fender Custom Shop employees in 2003, and they stated that the neck is from December ’62 and the body is a ’63. So Number One can rightly be called a ’63 Strat. Pickups are 1959, which is why Stevie referred to it as a ’59.
I think this could be useful for my double page or front cover spread, because it shows a full shot image of a guitarist with no facial expression and is using a guitar as a prop which could catch the readers attention as they know its something to do with rock.
