Hailed as one of the greatest bluesmen of the modern era, Stevie Ray Vaughan's tumultuous life is set to be traced in a new biography to be released next year.
Compiled by longtime Guitar World editors Alan Paul and Andy Aledort, Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan is billed for publication on 13 August 2019 by St. Martin's Press. The book will feature a lengthy compilation of "unadulterated facts" about the life and career of Vaughan from Double Trouble bandmates Tommy Shannon, Chris Layton and Reese Wynans, as well as past lovers, friends, older brother Jimmie Vaughan and contemporaries such as Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons and B.B. King, all of which have been collected over years of first-hand interviews.
Texas Flood will also feature first-hand insights from Vaughan himself, who was interviewed by Aledort four times prior to his untimely passing in 1990, as well as never-seen-before photos from the Vaughan family estate and the collections of his previous bandmates.
