The blues guitar great died 22 years ago today in a tragic helicopter crash. Gibson.com’s Peter Hodgson paid tribute on Facebook this morning: “On this day in 1990 we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan. I was 12 at the time and had already stolen a few of his licks and I was really sad to hear he'd died. He really seemed to have hit his stride with In Step and Family Style and it sucks that we never got to hear where he'd go next (and that he wouldn't give us any new licks to steal). RIP SRV.”
