Stevie Ray Vaughan : Little Wing : Loreley St. Goarshausen, Germany, August 25, 1984

SRV.  When Hendrix’s soul left the body, it, or at least a part of it, entered that of Stevie Ray Vaughan.  Nothing else can explain the uncanny way in which Vaughan can summon the selfsame tones and pain from a Stratocaster as Hendrix.  Channeling, some would say.  Haunted, more likely.  This boy was meant to carry Hendrix’s torch.  Oh, and by the way, he was one of the greatest blues guitarists to ever slide a longneck along the strings.  Originally broadcast via the German television program Rockpalast.
