Roadhouse Blues: Stevie Ray Vaughan and Texas R&B

by Hugh Gregory

Texas is the honorary home of roadhouse music, and the late Stevie Ray Vaughan its uncrowned king. More than just a biography and musical exploration of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Roadhouse Blues tells the stories of the great Texan musicians that came before him and influenced him so deeply. It puts in context Stevie Ray's rise to fame – including the part played by his family, his friends, his heroes (like Jimi Hendrix), and his addiction to drink and drugs – as well as the lasting impact that his brief but turbulent life and work had on his contemporaries, and on later generations of blues fans and guitar players.
