Description by OLDIES.com:

Stevie Ray Vaughan revitalized the blues. A true guitar legend, his otherworldly talent, tireless drive, and unique style propelled him from humble beginnings in Texas to international stardom. Vaughan worked relentlessly, touring the world while recording a steady stream of acclaimed music and ultimately exorcising the demons of addiction that pursued him for years. Free and healthy at last, he embraced a promise-filled future, making personal and professional plans with life-affirming joy and becoming an inspiration to others. In 1990, just four years into his new life, Vaughan died tragically in a helicopter crash, leaving fans throughout the world to grieve for the man and musician they had come to love and to mourn the silencing of his guitar. In a day-by-day format, Craig Hopkins presents an unparalleled celebration of one of the best electric guitarists of all time. With this second installment of a two-volume chronicle of Vaughan's life, Hopkins delivers an award-winning biography, meticulously researched and unprecedented in its devotion to detail. His Final Years, 1983-1990 tracks Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's recording career, from their debut release through their rise to stardom, an exciting journey through friendship, fame, and fate. Filled with first-hand accounts from those who knew Vaughan best, along with tour and recording dates and a lavish gallery of rare and intimate photographs, this illustrated treasury, together with its companion volume, His Early Years, 1954-1982, is the ultimate collector's item for any Stevie Ray Vaughan fan.
