Remembering The Day We Lost Stevie Ray Vaughan

amazon.com

On August 26, 1990, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble played a concert at the Alpine Valley Musical Theater in East Troy, Wisconsin, that featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, and Jimmie Vaughan. After the show, four helicopters that were reserved to fly the artists and their crews back to Chicago. One helicopter was reserved for Stevie, Jimmie, and his wife Connie. Members of Clapton’s crew, however, had already taken seats on the helicopter when the Vaughan’s arrived to board. Eager to return to Chicago, Stevie asked Jimmie and Connie for the last seat.

With dense fog settling in, the helicopters began departing at one a.m. August 27th. The pilot of Stevie’s helicopter, banked sharply to the left about a half-mile after take off. The helicopter collided into a ski slope; everyone on board was killed instantly.

Stevie Ray was buried at Laurel Land Memorial Park in South Dallas. More than 1,500 people attended the musician’s memorial service.
