Just flipping channels, half watching the TV window and half reading the Dope, and I hear a few notes of “Love Struck Baby”. Uh-oh. I’ll be here for the duration. Austin City Limits is re-running Stevie Ray Vaughan’s appearance, with some commentary I don’t remember from before - band members and some others, I think.
Vaughan is one of those musicians that just makes me move - sitting, walking around the house, driving - I simply can’t be still when that music is going. He’s one that I’ll always be sorry I didn’t see in person.
Now, with all that said, I’ll admit that I don’t know the genre very well. Who compares in style and skill? Since I can’t get any more Stevie, who would the Doper cognoscenti recommend?
