Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble: SRV

Joe Nick Patoski, Texas Monthly, November 2000

SRV BREAKS OUT of the gate with Little Stevie Vaughan before he was Stevie Ray. A member of Paul Ray and the Cobras, the kid's doing 'Thunderbird' – the upbeat, swinging standard by the Nightcaps, Texas' first great white-boy blues band – a song that every Dallas kid with an electric guitar and an attitude knew by heart.
