Mr. King

Albert King in session with his band and Stevie Ray Vaughan in Toronto, Canada at a live recording for a local TV station. Now out on CD.  Argueably Stevie’s biggest influence. Shaking Albert’s hand was like shaking someones foot..thick. He didn’t change guitars. He just played this custom Flying V with his name in the neck. He was a special person and a great performer.

Fiesta Red

Stevie playing his 1962 Fiesta Red Stratocaster. I bought this guitar from Charley Wirz in Dallas, Texas for $1000  and later sold it to Stevie for the same. It had a D neck and a great finish. Picture was taken during the session in Toronto with Albert King and band. Stevie is wearing an old pair of Tony Lama Boots.
