This guy figured it out before he ever walked out of his house, and what that thing was was half brut force and half finesse. It’s bend as hard and as fast as you can bend, but hit the note like a paper airplane landing perfectly on the street.

Check out some of my favorite quotes by fellow musicians, and singer-songwriters about the infamous, and insanely talented Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Gregg Allman I remember when he first came out, he was doing that Hendrix song “Voodoo Child“, and I heard all these people going, “Ah, he’s just trying to do Hendrix. But he went a lot further than that. He was absolutely 100-proof, pure blues.”

David Bowie I saw Stevie in two completely opposite places. In ’83 he was sitting on my floor during rehearsals for a not to be undertaken tour. His furrowed brow and sallow cheeks seemed old and weary on a face that young. Our talk drifted from blues to travel to books. All at once, his engine revved up to full throttle and he waxed at length about the things he read. As the conversation ended, his expression fell back into the unknownable depths that only the truly hurt can fathom.

Mick Jagger He was the greatest blues guitarist of his generation.

 

+Ain’t Gone ‘n’ Give Up  lyrics below+

I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love won’t give up on me
I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on me
Every tear that I’ve cried
Only washed away the fear inside
Now I, I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on loveEvery beat of my heart
Pounds with joy and not with pain
Every beat of my heart
Pounds with joy and not in vain
And although those are painful memories
Only brought me to my knees
I was just given up on love

Little Johnny Taylor told us so long ago
What about the midnight cryin’
Wo that cheatin’ and lyin’
What about the price that will
Oh surely be paid
Those that gave up on love
Love will have it’s day
I ain’t givin’ up on love

I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love won’t give up on me
I ain’t gone ‘n’ give up on love
Love won’t give up on me
Every time I cry
Love just won’t let me be
Won’t set me free
