In the 1980s, many assumed blues rock was left for dead, but Stevie Ray Vaughan helped breath life back into it. More than a straight-ahead bluesman, Texas-native Vaughan was influenced as much by Jimi Hendrix as he was by Otis Rush, and the singer/songwriter/guitarist possessed jaw-dropping technical abilities and pure soul in equal amounts. With his trio Double Trouble (later expanded to include keyboardist Reese Wynans), Vaughan helped spearhead something of a blues revival in the '80s. Like his hero Hendrix, though, the flamboyant guitar hero died too soon, killed in a helicopter accident in 1990.
