I was lucky enough to see him live, one time. He was joined onstage by George Benson. The two of them tore it up for an audience of about 75 people. SRV was special in a lot of ways, but, his pure love of music really was so evident that evening. I am convinced SRV and Mr. Benson would have played the same, had there only been 7 people in the audience.

Morello is great and so is the often overlooked Buckethead (none faster)!

The summer before he died, my cousin had tickets to see him at Pine Knob, just north of Detroit. I said no thanks, and told my wife that we could see him anytime, he comes to Detroit all the time. I had to work the next morning...

Bad choice... :(

Jimmy Bruno is a fine guitarist. It's Jazz, it's clean, fast and accurate. No hiding behind any distortion or effects. Maybe not everybodies cup of tea, but quite a lot of skill.

i was lucky enough to know him in person. worked security for a club where he got started, he was on the threshold of stardom and would do shows there a few times a year for $5 a person, place only held about 400. after hours partook in a few libations with him and his wife before he went clean. he really was a great person, never met a stranger, and never got a big head by any stretch of the imagination. always heard how he would sign autographs for anyone and everyone with a smile yet his autographs still bring top dollar. i was just too close to ever ask for one, felt wierd. too bad.

i remember one show with "the muddy waters band" sans muddy waters of course. srv was there as a regular listener, but afterwards i snuck down a bottle of hennessy for the "boys" in the band - Pinetop Perkins being the main story teller. it was a treat to sit in as a fly on the wall as stevie ray asked them questions and listened to their stories like a little league kid meeting the '62 yankees.

that was the last time i saw him.
