Stevie Ray Vaughn

It's been exactly 25 years since Stevie Ray Vaughn died in a helicopter crash at Alpine Valley after a concert with Eric Clapton. It was a foggy night and the pilot basically ran into the ski hill. There wasn't an explosion nor a fireball so it wasn't until 7am the next morning before the crash was discovered. I've been to Alpine Valley many times in 30 years and always thought that odd.

I was working the next morning and the first rumors were that it was Eric Clapton himself when in reality it was his manager that was also on board. A truly great guitarist was lost that night.

The Cubs lost another game today to the Giants. That's two in a row. Better luck tomorrow.

My dad is coming in town tomorrow on the train to spend the weekend. Wait till he sees that Coco chopped off his long locks!
