From Jimmie Vaughan’s epilogue to Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan:
“The guitar was Stevie’s instrument of liberation, his magic sword. I can’t even fathom Stevie without a guitar. It meant everything to him. It took Stevie around the world. It introduced him to his heroes. It allowed him to express himself so he could speak, so he could have an identity. So he could find out who he was. When Stevie played, his guitar talked and told his story. If you listen, you can hear it. You can hear him speaking through his guitar. I know I can.”
