Stevie Ray Vaughan: The Ultimate Guitar Hero!

More than 25 years after we tragically lost the greatest musician to ever walk the earth, Stevie Ray Vaughan received the highest honor in music: a spot in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame!

It was an emotional night. Joined by Jimmie Vaughan and inducted by John Mayer, Stevie’s band Double Trouble took the stage with heartfelt speeches accepting their induction before playing a star studded tribute featuring ‘Pride And Joy’ and ‘Texas Flood’ in honor of their late friend.

John Mayer called it the “honor of a lifetime” to induct Vaughan, whom he called “the ultimate guitar hero.”

We have to say – we agree with John! Though, the most moving words of the night came from Stevie’s big brother and best friend, Jimmie:

“It seems like to me that he’s just out on tour and he’s going to come back soon, but then I remember. I’m not going to ever get over losing him, I’m not going to get over this crazy thing.”

So sad, but we’re so glad that Stevie Ray Vaughan was finally recognized for the once in a lifetime talent he was.

Check out this exclusive video of Jimmie Vaughan, John Mayer, and Doyle Bramhall II performing ‘Pride And Joy’ and ‘Texas Flood’ in tribute to Stevie.

We know Stevie was there in spirit, rocking right along with them!

+ Pride And Joy lyrics +

Well you’ve heard about love givin’ sight to the blind
My baby’s lovin’ cause the sun to shine
She’s my sweet little thing, she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby, I’m her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby, my heart and soul
Love like ours won’t never grow old
She’s my sweet little thing, she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby, I’m her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby, she’s long and lean
You mess with her, you’ll see a man gettin’ mean
She’s my sweet little thing, she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby, I’m her little lover boy

Well I love my baby like the finest wine
Stick with her until the end of time
She’s my sweet little thing, she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby, I’m her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby, my heart and soul
Love like ours will never grow old
She’s my sweet little thing, she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby, I’m her little lover boy
