Tolerance, good temper and sympathy — they are what matter really, and if the human race is not to collapse they must come to the front before long.
- E. M. Forster
What a shame we lost him so young-- so much talent!!!
Saw him in 1989...none better.
I was a fan but never got to see him perform. I remember hearing the report of the crash like it was yesterday.
I saw him back in 1983, just after he broke out. Small club in Norfolk, got to stand up in front for the whole concert, and got one of his picks, as well, which I still have somewhere in storage. Saw the Fabulous Thunderbirds at the same venue a few months later and got to see his older brother Jimmie Vaughn; despite Stevie's filial praise for his brother's talent, I'd choose Stevie before Jimmie in a blues guitar showdown.
