SRV THE WHOLE DEAL IN TWO GREAT BOOKS !,
This review is from: Stevie Ray Vaughan: Volume 2: Day by Day, Night After Night, His Final Years, 1983-1990 (Hardcover)
This is a book that cannot be betttered, in fact there's two volumes, the early career and life growing up that sets the way for this one volume two Day by Day. The tours, the music, the albums, the man ,his band Double Trouble, his friends, ththose he worked with ,the effect on those he met and was musically involved with including of course Daved Bowie on the Let's Dance album, the rehersals for the tour he pulled out of. The radio broadcasts, the venues he played, it's all here in abundance. Full of posters ,album cover art, photograghs hundreds of them, the guitars, effects,amps, everything anyone could ever want on one totally unique and stunnong artist, and throughout he comes over as a very pleasant man who resected others whether his band, the big names he worked with as well as the many fans he met and signed autographs for.
This is in every way possible about as good as it gets, and gets you to enjoy his music even more if that's possible for one of the absolute greatest guitarists ever when it comes to the electric guitar. So get your boots on, turn it up, get down to some real Texas boogie as you read these wonderful books, and you do need to get both for the full story of a musical genius who out of Texas brought his music to the world, but so sadly left us far too soon. A ROCK CLASSIC PAIR OF BOOKS !
