    Fine, fine music indeed. Got the chance to see him live once back in the 90's. Oddly, the billing was "Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble with special guest Joe Cocker". You'd think Joe would be the opener at that point (peak of SRV's carrer, about a year or two before he died), but SRV did in fact open the show. Odd, that. Still, a great night of music there. Thanks for all the good sounds Joe! RIP.
    Regards, T Bone

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    Don't think I was ever exposed to his music , but this thread deserves at least one "best of" vid.



    ...which I'm gonna have a whizz through to see if I've heard of any of them before

    (I was gonna put a completely different artist video up , but I thought better of it , just the thought )

    I love his version of Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.

    He did a cover of the Beatles 'I'll get by with a little help from my friends' was the theme tune of the wonder years?

    Most gravely voice but belted our huge emotion

    Sad to see this. It's been a bad day as I also learned today that Ian McLagan of the Faces/Small Faces died recently (December 3rd, to be precise).

    The song that launched his career. "With a Little Help From My Friends" from Woodstock.
