Stevie ahh. . .

Perhaps the greatest blues guitarist of all time. I saw him live about 5 times including the "Couldn't stand the weather" tour. Always incredible. I spent coutless hours in the 80s trying to play like him and he left a huge impression on my own playing.

He's scary when he plays. And he has orgasms when he hits the right notes.

I think that he is the best blues player to ever grace the guitar and that playing slow or fast he loved to play his instrument. I would have loved to see him play.

I do find SRV overrated to some extent, he wasn't very innovative, but then again as Jr pointed out, blues guitarists tend to do the same things over and over, sometimes shamelessly "borrowing" each others chords, which further pisses me off when people give Page, Clapton, SRV or any non-african american blues guitarist crap for doing the same thing, only with them it's considered stealing, I think it qualifies as reverse racism...

SRV had a unique style in his playing, for a blues guitarist, Texas Flood is an exellent album.

Blues always has the same chords they don't shamelessly borrow chords. Blues by definition is a specific set of chords.
SRV however did not restrict himself to these chords though. Songs like "Couldn't stand the weather" stretched the genre.

I'm not even going to touch your comments about race they just don't make sense.

BTW B. B. King thinks Clapton is the greatest.

Which is odd because if anyone should be hammered for borrowing its clapton.

SRV was emotion, you can't argue that he stole, whatever he played he was feeling, and maybe that emotion is universal but its not stealing, it was him. SRV was ****ing amazing.

No music is completly original. It is all influenced by others. It should not be refered to as stealing. I like boo boo's use of the word "borrowing" much better.

I think that BB just thinks that clapton is a good musician.
