Stevie Ray Vaughan Playing The Guitar Behind His Head!
You Knock Me Off My Feet!
“Love Struck Baby” was written by Stevie Ray Vaughan and released in 1983 for his debut album “Texas Flood.” This song is basically about the night that he moved in with Lenny, his then-wife. The influence of legendary musician Chuck Berry is evident in the guitar solos.
“Love Struck Baby” was a concert favorite for fans of the band; Vaughan would frequently play the guitar behind his head for part of the solo.
Yes, you read that right. He played the sweet solo with the guitar BEHIND HIS HEAD as you can see on this video during one live performance. Can’t be beat! This is why he is a Guitar God. That was one mind-blowing technique. I kept on repeating that part and it never ceases to amaze me every single time. Some incredible guitar showmanship right there! Sometimes, he would play it behind his back especially when performing Texas Flood.
