Happy Birthday to Austin’s own, Stevie Ray Vaughan

Stevie Ray Vaughan Memorial on Town Lake Shores in Austin, Texas

Stephen Ray Vaughan (October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990), born in Dallas, Texas, was an American blues guitarist. His broad appeal made him one of the world’s most influential electric blues guitarists. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Stevie Ray Vaughan #7 in their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. Stevie lived in Austin; he was the younger brother of Jimmie Vaughan of Austin, Texas.

Stevie Antone’s Framed Print

Here’s a couple of Antone’s show prints I had framed at Hobby Lobby. They did a spectacular job! (If you go to Hobby Lobby at 183/Lakeline, ask for Mona). I bought these posters at Antone’s back around 2000. I’ve got a couple more of Stevie and Buddy Guy I’ll get framed one of these days.

Stevie Ray Vaughan Birthday Celebration. This is a SRV print I bought at Antone’s.

Aren’t those matching frame mats stunning!
