Just sifting through Stevie vids and saw this little piece of SRV breaking a string at about 2:30 into it. Not really a big deal just jammin.

Very cool, the way he swaps instruments without a pause in the music. The guy on keyboards can really play too !

Reese Wynans is definatley one heck of a keyboard player. He joined SRV and the band around 1985. Toured with them right up until the day music died(the second time). The first time in my opinion was Hendrix. Contrary to who the song was actually written about. At any rate the keyboard pays a nice compliment to a few songs they released in the past.

Another little piece of SRV caught on tape. Looks like the road definatley took its toll on him in this interview. Still I enjoy to watch whatever footage is availible on this stratomaster.

Thanks for sharing that. Some amazing playing that video especially the last tune. I wish I knew where to get the whole performance that it is from.

Anybody know?

according to who? rolling stone magazine ? lol

srv did one thing amazingly, ill give him that..

...he brought blues to an audience that were being pounded with MTV's constant rotation of snazzy mc hammer and snap! videos when most of the popular music crowds of the world didnt know what real texas blues sounded like...srv introduced people and record companies to unheard of sales figures and to a sound...thats all..

he made a living..he died tragically...but he was no originator..and whoever says that srv is in some top 10 or 50 list of guitar players can take the list and push it aside...

cuz even vaughan, if he were today, would say its a crock..lol

it was SRV and Johnny Winter that got me into the blues

but they can't beat the first electrified bluesers like Muddy Waters or Howlin' Wolf

or even the acoustic ones like Robert Johnson

I guess since this person is no longer on MB it doesnt matter. After reading this post I can see why.

I remember that Unplugged. Him and Satriani were lights out. My favorite video I have is of the Montreux festival trips in 82 and 85. Crowd boo'ed SRV the very first time he played there and he played his ass off. David Bowie came back stage and walked into the guys feeling sorry for themselves and said it was the greatest blues set he'd ever seen. I also enjoyed Live at El Mocambo but the Montreux fest really showed how he change from 82 to 85. We'll never know but perhaps he could have been the greatest blues guitarist ever, he was just beginning.
