Modern blues. An eccentric style. It's not for all palettes. But if you focus...it's serene.

one either feels it or one doesn't.

I watched him nearly boo'd off the stage as an opener for Sammy Hagar.

He Stood Fast.

By the end of his set he earned respect from anyone that plays.

If you have to ask you wouldn't understand comes to mind...
All I know as a drummer, I would have ( almost ) given my right arm to have shared a stage with SRV for just one show!
What an experience that would have been.

Re: Can anyone tell me why Stevie Ray Vaughan is supposed to be so great
He’s a bit of a musicians musician I think. The way he plays is so smooth and rhythmically perfect. He’s not focusing on the notes, he’s emoting from a real place inside. He was good. Real good. I can see why people might not like his music though because the genre isn’t all that interesting to the average listener.

I agree, there was nothing amazingly unique or different about him as far as blues rock players go.

Competent player but that's about it.

He was phenomenal when he was drunk and coked

Then like so many other rock and roll musicians, he sobered up and his music went down the drain

He's a great blues player, but he copied Albert King's style completely. People who never knew who Albert King was thought Stevie Ray Vaughn was innovative and original. He knew he was copying Albert King. That's all he really ever set out to do. Other people just didn't know it.

It sounds like the Conjunction Junction guy trying hard to be BB King.

And there's really just the two songs, it seems.

ABSOLUTELY! SRV made his guitar a part of him better than any other that I have ever seen. I've been playing for 42 years and am fluent in just about every style, but SRV WOW!

I think what you say is true if applied instead to Eric Clapton. He sings and plays like King. SRV has his own sound.

Here's AK and SRV jamming. Highlight at the 27:00 mark.

No, I don't think.
It sounds like frenetic SRV. It's not the blues at all, not even close.
There are many bands more bluesy than SRV.

I grew up on the south side of Chiraq.I have seen pretty much everyone.Saw SRV several times.He just got better and better.Who knows what he could have done.One time he was 2 hours late,so fucked up he could hardly walk and still played great for 2 hours.It was a small place, i think my hearing damage started that night.You walk into a white bar on the southside and dis SRV your gonna lose some teeth.

Stevie is no doubt a fantastic guitar player, but what kind of style would he have without the masters he learned from. Albert King certainly was, he plays his guitar upside down with the smaller strings on top along with no pick.
Stevie took all his licks and praising from all the Kings, BB, Freddie and Albert, along with Jimi and Wes Montgomery, ...I should know...so have I!
And Stevie had great taste, BTW, I’ve seen Stevie, Jimi and BB all live before each one passed away. God bless them all.

How many other guitarists do you know can keep playing and not miss a note after breaking a D string while playing the intro to "Voodoo Child" with the guitar slung behind their back?

It's a shame to have that much talent (so I'm told) and utterly waste it on such crap songs "Ride Sally Ride!" and "Leave your hat on" FFS.

I mean really, all you can think about is fucking?

And that voice, I hope and pray that he will but today he is still just a bill"

He is as amazing to watch as to listen to.

Blues is a state of mind.
