Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons, and Jackson Browne are all featured in a new documentary, ‘Jimmie & Stevie Ray Vaughan: Brothers in Blues.’
The film reveals the "never-before-told story behind [their] music as told by those who knew them best. It’s an insider’s look at their early days, the rise and the triumph of two of the best guitarists from Texas and goes deeper into their background and history than previous works because of the full cooperation of Jimmie Vaughan."
Gibbons talked about being on the Texas club circuit with Jimmie in the '60s, and the events leading up to his being a witness at Stevie’s wedding.
Clapton and Jimmie gave their first on-camera interviews about what happened on the night that Stevie passed away. Jackson Browne recalled loaning his recording studio to Double Trouble for their debut album, Texas Flood in 1983, and singing at Stevie’s funeral.
The film features never-before-seen photos and home movies, and takes a look at the popularity of rock ‘n roll bands after The Beatles’ 1964 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, along with the teen club scene in Oak Cliff (near Dallas) that spawned the Vaughan Brothers and their eventual move to Austin.
The film is up on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube Movies, Cable and Satellite On Demand across North America.
Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed in a helicopter crash on August 27th, 1990 after performing with Eric, Jimmie, Buddy Guy and Robert Cray in East Troy, Wisconsin.
