HELLO GMC;ERS,HIPPIEJOE WITH A LITTLE STORY ABOUT BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME AND MAKING THE WRONG CHOICE. MY FIRST ROCK CONCERT WAS IN 1978,THE BAND WAS KISS AND THE PYROTECHNICS GUYS WERE WORKING OVERTIME! IT WAS GREAT BUT I ONLY TELL YOU THIS PART OF THE STORY TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA WHAT AN OLD-TIMER I AM. THE STORY I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU HAPPENED A FEW YEARS LATER AFTER MANY MORE CONCERTS, ONE OF WHICH WAS OZZY WITH THE LATE GREAT RANDY RHOADES! THIS IS WHAT SPARKED MY FIRE TO LEARN GUITAR. SO ANYWAY,A FEW MONTHS AFTER I HAD STARTED TAKING LESSONS AT THE LOCAL MUSIC STORE I WAS WALKING IN TO TAKE A LESSON WHEN ONE OF THE INSTRUCTORS COMES UP TO ME IN WHAT SEEMED TO ME LIKE A STATE OF SHOCK AND CONFUSION AND STARTED TALKING ABOUT THIS NEW GUITAR PLAYER WHO WAS PLAYING IN A LOCAL BAR AND ASK IF I WOULD LIKE TO GO, SAYING THAT THIS GUY WAS GONNA BE ALL THE RAGE AND THAT I SHOULD CHECK IT OUT. I INSTEAD CHOSE TO BE THE GOOD GUITAR STUDENT AND LEARN RATHER THAN HIT THE CLUB. WELL THIS GUY HAD JUST PUT OUT HIS FIRST ALBUM AND STARTED HIS FIRST TOUR AND AS IT TURNS OUT,THE MAN I DID NOT GO TO SEE AT THE LOCAL CLUB WAS NONE-OTHER THAN THE LATE GREAT STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN! I NEVER GOT A SECOND CHANCE TO SEE STEVIE,ALTHOUGH HE`S ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITE GUITAR PLAYERS. NEVER HAS THERE BEEN A MORE SOULFUL BLUES PLAYER! NOW THAT`S A HEAVY PRICE TO PAY FOR ONE GUITAR LESSON! TIL NEXT TIME,PEACE! sad.gif

yea,it was a huge mistake on my part,but you know what they say about hindsight! I would recommend that you go out and purchase his concert video called "Live At The El Mocambo" if you haven`t already. It is a great performance! Also appeared on Austin City Limits,which is out on video as well.
