I do a semi-regular feature on Friday’s over at my place called Radio KBwD. Its an opportunity at the end of the work week to just relax and to introduce what I feel is some great music. . The tie-in here was too difficult (obvious?) to resist. The song you are about to hear is also the title track of the very first album I owned (tape cassette - yes, I’m dating myself). For my money, the man stands only behind Jimi Hendrix in terms of greatest rock’n’roll guitar players… and they’re standing very close to each other. I walked around in a daze for a day or so after finding out he had died in a plane crash in Wisconsin. He left us way too early and he still had so much great music to make. We will always have, though, what he left behind. . Ladies and Gentlemen, from Austin Texas…. Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble performing “Texas Flood”.
