With his no holds barred blues-rock attitude and virtuosic guitar capabilities, Stevie Ray Vaughan soared during the 1980s to become one of the greatest guitarists of all time. As the voice of the American blues during his incredible and groundbreaking career, Stevie Ray’s guitar style paid homage to the likes of Muddy Waters and Jimi Hendrix while showcasing his own characteristically warm and full-bodied tone. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2000, and has been cited as a major influence from such guitarists as John Mayer and Robert Randolph to Eric Johnson and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Tragically, Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a 1990 helicopter crash, but his legacy lives on as an American blues-rock icon and a guitarist of unparalleled talent and vision.
