It still breaks my heart whenever I think of SRV and how he was gone way too soon. No one who went to his concert on August 26, 1990 ever imagined it would be his final show. And the thing is, it’s not just memorable because it was his last performance.
All things considered, it was highly regarded as one of the finest moments in his entire career.
“The worst thing for me was that Stevie Ray had been sober for three years and was at his peak. When he played that night, he had all of us standing mere with our jaws dropped. I mean, Robert Cray and Jimmie Vaughan and Buddy Guy were just watching in awe. There was no one better than him on this planet. Really unbelievable.” – Eric Clapton
It was an intense and electrifying performance. And if your peers and fellow rock gods are all “watching in awe,” then you must be doing something right.
The legacy he left will never be forgotten. Stevie Ray Vaughan was a league of his own.
