It was 25 years ago today that a plane crash took the life of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Although Austin was his home base, Vaughn was a frequent visitor to Lubbock. He, in fact, was scheduled to play The South Plains Fair before he died.

In honor of his passing, I dug up this video of some of his performance at the first Tornado Jam.

You can tell that even in 1980, he was an absolute monster on stage. If nothing else, check out this jamming thing he does starting at 4:38. Rest in peace, SRV.
