“Performing Live " Voodoo Chile "
When I hear the distinctive sound of SRV making a Fender Strat scream it gives me goose bumps ! This cat from Texas played with his heart on his sleeve , he played balls out , no fear , he pushed boundaries , he would bend a guitar string until it was about to snap !
What is sad is SRV kicked drugs , liquor and put out a Grammy winning LP " In Step " after the 12 step program of sobriety then he boarded that helicopter after a gig and God needed a cat that could only play like SRV !
