10 May 1952, Chicago, Illinois, USA. A self-taught blues musician, Vaughan began playing at the age of 12. Although he was primarily known as a guitarist and saxophonist, he also played piano and bass guitar. His influences include Howlin’ Wolf, Elmore James and particularly Albert King. After appearing on several sessions (including Phil Guy’s), he released his debut album on his own Reecy label in 1984. It was later picked up by Alligator Records; he also recorded for that label’s New Bluesblood anthology in 1987, as well as for the French label Blue Phoenix. In 1988 Guitar Player magazine included him in its listing of the greatest working blues musicians.
