Another one of my favorite guitarists, and to me, he is one of the all time greats. He dedicated his life to become a guitarist, after falling into a barrel of sauce while working at a fast food restuarant. He then dropped out of school and started his first band named Blackbird. In 1977, he formed the band Double Trouble which had great commercial success with albums like Texas Flood and Couldn't Stand the Weather.
He tragically died on August 26, 1990 while on his way to a sold out concert of 30,000 people in East Troy, Wisconsin. It featured an encore jam with Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and others. When his helicopter took off to take him to Chicago, it crashed.
I always listen to this song to get relaxed. Lots of his music really speaks to your soul. Later on I will post some more songs, but this one is great to start off with.
