Stevie Ray Vaughan was an American blues musician who achieved major success from his influential guitar style and voice.  He is mentioned in the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Robert Johnson as one of the most influential blues artists.  The crisp amplifying of Vaughan’s music became a mainstay in the promotion of blues in the mid-1980’s and early 1990’s.  He was voted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2000 and was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.

Not only did Stevie Ray Vaughan excel in the world of blues, he brought a new sound to an old style of music, incorporating his own traits along with his influences such as B.B. King, Howlin’ Wolf, & Muddy Waters.  His untimely death in a helicopter crash in 1990 was mourned by his fans and the posthumous record “The Sky is Crying,” was released in 1991.  Stevie Ray Vaughan is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.
