STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN it's gonna be 22 years!!!  I saw him 8 weeks before he died!  
I have fond memories of that show.

STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN opened for JOE COCKER.  The audience was there for STEVIE.  I myself, though I had STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN's Couldn't Stand The Weather album and loved him (the show was perfection) was there for JOE COCKER (I'm sure I've reported time and again how I yelled at the fools who walked out after STEVIE left the stage  "JOE COCKER's coming on!!!"  Question)  
A lot of people missed COCKER, but, they were there for STEVIE.
I don't care; both acts were perfection.  I could watch them both every night.  

EDITED to correct count...

Actually it's 22 years this August.  Smile

I still continue to relentlessly champion his fretboard prowess to everyone I meet when it comes to talking guitars and music. SRV could play anything and with more natural accuracy and energy than anyone else I ever heard or seen. Sadly, hardly anyone has heard of the great man over here, but I have recently made sure that there's plenty of Stevie on the jukebox at our local bar.

Twenty-two years ago on my birthday  Bluesad

We saw him play in Minneapolis just a few weeks before his death.  That was an awesome show.  I think the Dixie Dregs with Steve Morse opened up for him.  An unforgettable experience, probably the best concert I've ever been to.  And I LOVED Couldn't Stand The Weather, that album is some of the best blues (IMO) anywhere.

Thank you, CC.  I'm great on years, but I always think 1989 with STEVIE, I don't know why, and of course it's 1990.  I  think I was in shock that terrible day.  
Jack, that happens sometimes.

I remember feeling tremendously fortunate to have seen STEVIE live.  I have also seen ERIC CLAPTON (when he toured with MARK KNOPFLER).   No other guitarists I've had the pleasure (or not) of seeing come even close to those two shows.

I wish I had been able to see him just once....he was awesome! One of Texas' great native musicians.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
