You have to see it to believe it

I've told this story before, but it bears repeating... the first time I saw Stevie Ray Vaughan play, after hours and hours and hours of listening to the audio, I could not get over it. "Wait!!! Where the hell is the other guitar player?!?" And still, watching the video -- even all these years later -- I still want to search the stage for another set of hands and a rhythm guitar. Incredible.

Kind of bittersweet, knowing he's no longer doing that (on this plane).

There's a lot of that going around. As I type this, I'm listening to George Harrison sing "My Sweet Lord." :-/

I haven't seen this in a while. I have an SRV Strat, but almost never play it because listening to him makes me feel totally unworthy.

I'm the worst piano player ever, but it still makes me happy to try. Having a SRV Strat sounds extra cool.
