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.
