“He seemed to come out of nowhere, a Zorro-type figure in a riverboat gambler’s hat, roaring into the festival with a ’59 Stratocaster at his hip and two flame-throwing sidekicks he called Double Trouble.”

In the 1980s, Stevie Ray Vaughan was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasised his influence in blues and American rock & roll. Fresh out of rehab, and midway through a two-year trek during the Live Alive Tour, Vaughan provided fans with one of his best ever performances for the Mardi Gras, New Orleans on 28th February 1987. From exhilarating displays of rhythmic skills to a mesmerising sense of timing, these qualities culminated in what is now often referred to as the ‘Texas Shuffle’.

Rox Vox revisits an outstanding performance with a fully restored and professionally remastered original MTV broadcast. Presented with background notes and timeline photos.
