  • I played the blues for 30 years. SRV is very strong. I am applying for a visa but not through. Anyone can help me. Allow me to go to this place as well. Before dying, please go once.
  • I visited Austin in April 2019 and spent a lot of time at the Stevie Ray Vaughan Memorial. He was one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century and certainly a tribute to the state of Texas. I love his music because he played from his heart. In Stevie's own words, "I use heavy strings, tune low, play hard and floor it."
