Can't let this day go by without remembering Stevie. It was 20 years ago today that he died. He is and always will be my Guitar Hero! From what I've read, he was a great guy as well. I never saw him play live, but from what I've heard on the radio, tapes, CDs, etc., in my book, he was and still is the greatest guitar player. Rest in Peace Stevie!
Went to a SRV tribute concert that was on over here on the 27th Aug. He was good, played the songs pretty authentically, also played some influences of Stevie - tho don't know how he could do that without playing any Albert King... It'll never be the same, but it's good to hear them performed and done well. RIP SRV
