    27th Aug 1990, Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed when the helicopter he was flying in, hit a man-made ski slope while trying to navigate through dense fog. Vaughan had played a show at Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy, Wisconsin with Robert Cray & His Memphis Horns, and Eric Clapton. Vaughan was informed by a member of Clapton's crew that three seats were open on a helicopter returning to Chicago with Clapton's crew, it turned out there was only one seat left; Vaughan requested it from his brother, who obliged. Three members of Eric Clapton's entourage were also killed.

    Everytime i hear lenny play i hang my head and cry. See i'm one of those boys who hears a true virtuoso play the strings and becomes his follower, the only other artist to do this to me has been frank zappa, and of course here in lies my issue, talent beyond what the entire population can undertsand or appreciate is ripped from us that adored them. I am still not over srv being gone, stirred his coke into his coffee, everything he did had style man!
