Wow, only 41. Sad to see him go. :(

He did a great version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

I remember watching Road House and he was playing in it.

Great guitarist.

OMG no ! Besides Jeff Beck, the only guy I ever saw capable of mixing it up live onstage with SRV.

Anybody know the origins of that YouTube video of Jeff & SRV ?

A great loss. Too bad I never saw him live.

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jeff Healey performed this song on the Canadian show It?s Only Rock & Roll! Vaughan met Healey for the first time when he arrived in Toronto to do the show and was introduced to the Canadian guitarist by the producers.

The guy was a heck of a guitar player. Sorry to hear of his death.

Very true ... When I first saw him play live I expected him to become a legend but it just never happened.
