The Station Inn, Nashville, TN

Alan Paul and Andy
Aledort have written the definitive biography on the life of Stevie
Ray Vaughan. They recently held a book release event/book talk/Q+A
session at Nashville's iconic Station Inn followed by a musical
celebration of SRV featuring Jack Pearson, Greg Martin, Scott
Sharrad, Seth Walker, JD Simo, Guthrie Trapp and themselves. The
event was sponsored and presented by Laurie Gregory of Roots Radio
WMOT. Copies of the book were available for purchase and signed by
the authors.

The book talk was very
informative with the authors sharing their experiences and
conversations from the exhaustive research done as the prelude to the
actual writing of the book. An inside look at the making of the book
with many interesting anecdotes from those involved in Stevie's life.  

Then the musical
celebration began, with the Midnight Rider's supplying the Bass,
drums, and keyboards for the event. The various guitar players all
had their personal Stevie Ray stories to tell, illustrating their
connection to Stevie.

One story in particular
was Jack Pearson telling of the time in Austin when he and Stevie
would pay the same clubs, Stevie had blown his amp (A trademark was
Stevie pushing equipment to the limit)and asked Jack if he could
borrow his for the night….With that intro Jack started a slow blues
like Stevie would play.
