20th anniversary of the worst weekend of our life.
We were winding down our first week of work out of Seminary when on that Thursday evening we came down with food poisoning. A really, really bad case of food poisoning. So while dealing with that we get t-boned in our car while trying to cross multiple lanes of traffic on Saturday morning. There was an infant in the other car and thankfully he was buckled in securely so neither he nor his Mom who was driving were hurt. And the sickening feeling we would've had for realizing how much worse the accident could've been was covered ably by the food poisoning.
It was later on that evening, curled up in bed in a sweating, shivering ball that we got the news that Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed in a helicopter accident in Wisconsin.
Our very first album purchase was Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's Couldn't Stand the Weather and to this day he remains our favorite guitar player.
We survived that weekend and relatively speaking, it's been all uphill ever since.
Ladies and Gentlemen, in honor of the life and career of the man, from Austin, Texas, it's Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble performing, "Rude Mood/Hideaway".
