If he were still alive, he would've sounded great onstage with The Allmans. I would've loved to have seen Stevie play on Liz Reed, Whipping Post, Stormy Monday, etc.

When I saw SRV at Poplar Creek outside Chicago in '87, Gregg opened....this was when I'm No Angel was out.

Unfortunately there was no onstage collaboration.

I've often wondered if it was because Stevie was newly clean and Gregg was still using.

Was lucky to have seen Stevie several times. He got really good when he became sober!

Only saw him once, two years before he died.

He was amazing.

the Allmans couldn't share a stage with SRV!


Are you saying that Duane Allman couldn't hold his own with Stevie Ray Vaughan? I respectfully disagree....

And having seen the latter day Allmans at their peak ('94-'96 as well as the last few years) and SRV at his (I was at Alpine Valley) I can say that both would mesh very well on stage.

I was lucky to see SRV one time and have to give him thanks for inspiring me to start playing guitar.

However Duane and Dickey's playing moves me a whole lot more than anyone.

I'm saying the current band or any incarnation when SRV was alive.

Saw SRV many times and there's no way the current ABB could keep up. No way.
I saw SRV play with the surviving members of Lynyrd Skynyrd on the jerry lewis telethon in 1987 [+ Toy Caldwell] all on stage trading solos on [call me the breeze] most of the guys "held their own" with Stevie. get a bootleg copy and check that out.

Guitar playing has nothing to do with "keeping up with" or "competing with" anyone......whoever thinks this is the case is displaying that they don't know much about it. Its all about harmony and feeling.............it pours out of the great ones........having said that, neither Duane, Dickey, Derek, Warren or anyone for that matter that has slung 6 strings over their shoulder as a member of the ABB would have a problem "keeping up" as it was stated with Stevie and vica versa.

People tend to forget that SRV had his demons as well. The Soul to Soul album was pretty weak. However, the two times I saw SRV play he was great. Of course I've seen Warren Haynes own a show or two with Dickey and Derek ... well ... come on ... Derek ain't scared of nobody. Got no cause. I can assure you or anybody the SRV would be pushed as much pushing anybody. No offense to anybody but SRV could be somewhat of a one trick pony. There are countless hacks everywhere doing reasonable imitations of SRV. Haven't heard many Warren or Derek clones. It could be popularity but it could be because one is easier to get too. Don't humor the trash, Brent.

Saw him the day before at the Benson and Hedges Blues Festival in Costa Mesa. It was a good time! Hard to believe that was almost 20 years ago.

Thanks for the post Vince. It made my day.

No worries. 'Tis a small world we inhabit...



A year later, but I was at the same festival as well!

Had to add this as well. We've all been to shows that are memorable for one reason or another...


A few weeks / months after SRV died (Memory failure)...My girlfriend and I made the trek up the 5 freeway from San Diego to see Little Feat and Santana...

When Carlos came out on stage, he said a few words to the crowd about how happy he was to be there and then spoke these words which I will never forget....

"I would like to dedicate this show to my dear old friend, Stevie Ray Vaughn, who is now in a place where he is bathed by a light that casts no shadow"

You could have heard a pin drop in the audience... no sh*t.

To this day one of the most amazing and humbling Rock & roll moments I've ever witnessed

There is actually some video of SRV & Gregg together, a soundcheck. To my knowledge they didn't play together during the actual tour shows.

I know I should let it go folks, but I just got to thinking how asinine this statement is. I can't figure out if spring is talking about the current or recent guitarists (excluding Betts) keeping up with SRV the guitarist or the current or recent ABB keeping up with SRV's band. Well lets debate bands first.

Allen Woody, Otiel Burbridge, (Do you want to include Rook too?) vs. Tommy Shannon
Butch Trucks, Jaimoe vs. Chris Layton ...

Ok that settled. Now on to guitarists. Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, (oh and here's the kicker) Jack Pearson and Jimmy Herring unable to hang with SRV??? Are you high??? Hey SRV would be hard to beat in a straight Albert King shuffle, but when the genre expands to include jazz, rock, country, funk, etc. The playing field levels awful quickly. Jparadise said it so succinctly guitar playing or music in general isn't about "keeping up with" or "competeing." Stevie certainly knew that. Witness the way he praised his brother or the way used his celebrity to bring recognition to others like Lonnie Mack, Fenton Robinson, etc. Stevie used his words and actions to make this a more beautiful place. Shame that we all can't do this.

Anyway back to the original post. Yes Stevie would have sounded great with the current incarnation. Just like Clapton did last year. SRV was a great talent and is sorely missed. There may very well not been a ABB touring unit since 89 making great music had it not been for SRV. He single handedly changed the current musical landscape by bringing the blues and blues guitar back into vogue.

"Keeping up with ..." SRV, Duane, Dickey, Warren, Derek, Jack P, Jimmy H ... players at this level can play with ANYBODY - period! There is a plateau that a player reaches where he/she can pretty much emulate another player. The differences in styles and methods by all of these players are what makes each of them unique in their own right.

I'm sure all of these guys have (or had) the utmost respect for each other. To paraphrase someone (Dickey, I think) - it's not a race - nobody keeps score.

Thank God for the gift that these amazing players have given us! I know I do!

I got a SBD copy of Gregg's set of this show, thanks to Sang and you, too, Coot? Haven't been able to find a copy of SRV's set, though, which might have been better than the Alpine Valley show I was at....been looking for over 20 years.

The funny thing is, Rusty, is that the only people that seem to keep score aren't players....
