It was the warm night of August 26th, 1990-5:00pm to be exact, when I arrived for the festivities to begin as Stevie Ray Vaughan was ready to take the stage in East Troy, Wisconsin. The ticket read Eric Clapton And His Band with Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble plus The Robert Cray Band featuring The Memphis Horns.

The crowd was amazing as the show had been sold out for weeks! It was Clapton playing his blues, Robert Cray lighting it up a tad more, then the monster Tex-Mex blues chords that Stevie Ray poured out of the monitors as if the sky was crying and the ground was shaking along to the tremble of this blues master hot in his game of bringing the house down! I had never heard such an amazing sound of soul power piercing my body like a sledgehammer touching my heart with every riff.
