    Funny thing is, he didn't consider himself a great guitarist. Coulda fooled me!

    Twenty years already??

    I love me some SRV!.......my children and SWMBO'd refer to him as the 'dead guy'. When I want the house to myself......or I want SWMBO'd to 'wholeheartly' agree with me going to the range or fishing, I put in the SRV.

    Yup, I remember that day. Awesome guitarist. IMO one of the best to ever pick one up.

    He was just an open channel musically speaking. It flowed through him like water in a stream. RIP Stevie.

    He made it look easy. I saw him a couple of times back in the late 80's before his death. I still remember where I was when I heard about his helicopter going down. For him to do all that with all the problems he had only to finally get clean prior to his death was tragic.

    Double Trouble (Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon) live on in Storyville. Great sound with a great frontman, but not the same.
