Stevie Ray Vaughan – Little Wing (Live at Rockpalast in 1984)

25 years ago yesterday, Stevie Ray Vaughan died tragically in a helicopter crash. I had tickets to see him a few days before his death, but I skipped it because I had a horrible cold and some exams coming up. That was a major life lesson for me – don’t miss an opportunity to see one of your favorite artists, because there’s always a chance that there won’t be another opportunity. So go see your favorite artists today.

I’m posting this video at the request of a reader, who reminded me that the anniversary of his passing was yesterday. This is an incredible version of “Little Wing” that morphs into a killer “Third Stone From The Sun” guitar freakout by Vaughan. Check it out.
