    Well said indeed...

    A man who was initially booed in Canada, the crowd didn't understand what he was doing, as he was so far ahead of his time.

    Like many classics - a lot of what we hear today is an echo of his greatness.

    I agree KWS and Storyville (includes Double Trouble) have put out some excellent music but there is only one SRV.

    RIP SRV - seems fitting that the sky is crying this weekend.

    Lookin' back in front of me, in the mirror's a grin
    Through eyes of love I see, I'm really lookin' at a friend
    We've all had our problems, that's the way life is
    My heart goes out to others who are there to make amends

    There will never be another the likes of you.
    I used to see him in free concerts in Memphis ~25+ years ago.

    I caught him a few times back in the day, with the T-birds too!
    Its some what of a little know factoid that the statue marking his birth place is really in the wrong place, in Dallas/S. Oak Cliff (as in the wrong section of town not just a block or to off mark.)

    I saw him back in the late 80's... as an opening act. That's one artist I can look back on and say I was blessed to see. I can't even tell you who the headliner was. I was blown away and have been a fan ever since. RIP, SRV.

    I just saw this thread and immediately put "In The Beginning" into the CD tray. He introduced me to the blues and he was a great one. No one had more respect for the genre than SRV. I'll miss him always. Thanks for remembering the anniversary...I'm kind of ashamed that I didn't.

    I need to check in the Banter forums more often..

    RIP Stevie..

    One of the greatest.

    Its hard for me to watch SRV videos without tearing up a little.
