Hi my name is Steve Ray Vaughan. I’m famous because I wrote and played many songs like pride and joy, little wing, and Rood Mood. I was born on October 3rd in Dallas Texas. When I was younger I watched my parents dance to western swing which got me into music. I taught myself guitar from listing to many blues artists. I dropped out of high school and moved to Austin when I was 17 to purge my music career. When I was a grownup I recorded an album with David Bowie and our Just Dance song was #1 in country and that song helped me get my name out there. I also went on to record a total of 18 albums and I toured all over the world. My music was so good that I won a total of 6 Grammys. Another interesting thing about me is I loved I mean LOVED Jimmy Hendrix and he was a huge influence on my music. I passed away on august 27 1990 in East Troy Wisconsin in a helicopter crash but my legacy still lives on.
