SRV, Chris Layton & Tommy Shannon At Carnegie Hall

Stevie Ray Vaughan celebrates his 30th birthday by playing Carnegie Hall.

From Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan: “We went to all kinds of lengths for that show,” says Chris “Whipper” Layton. “Jimmie Vaughan had the idea to have mariachi suits made and we went to Nella’s Tailors and talked to the Mexican women there. We looked at all this material and their cool silver buttons and buckles hardware, and picked out what we wanted for our pants and jackets and Stevie decided to have two suits made, one blue and one red.”
