Stevie Ray Vaughan Named One Of The Greatest Guitarists Of All Time – Rolling Stone

Stevie Ray Vaughan is included in Rolling Stone’s new list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time. Here is an excerpt:

“Texas’ Stevie Ray Vaughan demanded your attention. He had absorbed the styles of just about every great blues guitarist – plus Jimi Hendrix and a lot of jazz and rockabilly – and his monster tone, casual virtuosity and impeccable sense of swing could make a blues shuffle like ‘Pride and Joy’ hit as hard as metal. Vaughan was recognized as a peer by the likes of B.B. King and Eric Clapton, and despite his 1990 death in a helicopter crash, he’s still inspiring multiple generations of guitarists.”
