I used to get all the German TV channels on the old satellite system (back in the eighties) and I remember watching all the great Rockpalast concerts late at night. One night they ran a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert, and as I watched it, I nearly lost my mind. I'd never really seen anything like it. I still haven't.
Later on, Stevie Ray had cleaned up his act and was touring again. He had a concert scheduled in London, and I was going to fly down and see him play. Sadly, he died not long before that, after playing at Alpine Valley with Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and his brother Jimmie. So I never did get to see Stevie Ray playing live.
Well, there was something that happened to me, kind of the absolute reverse of what happened to Patriot himself, the owner of this blog, on 9/11 - but that's a whole other story, for another time. Right here, right now, here's SRV playing at Lorelei in 1984.
