(Book). 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.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Texans have always considered themselves apart from the rest of the United States, and Texan musicians have felt this more than most. The music of Texas is different. The location is certainly a factor, making it easy for musicians to absorb the influences of Mexico to the south, New Mexico and Southern California to the west, Oklahoma to the north, and Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico to the east. The music of Texas - blues, country or jazz - has a strutting machismo, and it s all unified and informed by that distinctive characteristic. Roadhouse Blues profiles the context and traditions of Texas RB that made Stevie Ray Vaughan one of the best guitarists of the rock era and his brother Jimmie Vaughan s Fabulous Thunderbirds a definitive RB band of the time. It examines the roots that the Vaughan brothers drew upon, illuminates the key events from their musical careers, and concludes by evaluating the legacy of Stevie Ray Vaughan following his tragic early death in 1990. Along the way hybrids such as Tex-Mex and western swing have evolved. But in Texas it s the individual who shines out. Labelling music is for others. This explains why some of the most influential and individual performers have come from Texas: bluesmen Lightnin Hopkins and Mance Lipscomb; guitarists T-Bone Walker and Johnny Guitar Watson; western swing exponent Bob Wills; rock n rollers Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper; country singers Willie Nelson, George Jones, and Waylon Jennings; accordionist Flaco Jimenez; songwriters Lyle Lovett, Guy Clark, and Townes van Zandt; and vocalist Janis Joplin.
