It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting
for death is the destiny of every man; the living should take this to heart.
Ecclesiastes 7:2(NIV)

Stevie Ray Vaughan


Stevie Ray Vaughan died in the early morning hours of August 27, 1990 in a helicopter crash in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. He had played in an all-star blues concert featuring, among others, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray and Buddy Guy. After the show, he was scheduled to travel to Chicago by helicopter. Lifting off in dense fog, the pilot did not allow enough clearance for the surounding terrain, and crashed into a hillside, killing all on board. The National Transporation Safety Board found that "improper planning-decision" by the pilot was the principal reason for the crash.
