Stevie Ray Vaughan would have turned 60 on Friday October 4th; we began with a couple from the legendary guitarist we lost in 1990. SRV preferred the Strat, but Albert Collins was the self-proclaimed “Master of the Telecaster.” The late guitarist shares Stevie’s birthdate, as well as harmonica ace Billy Branch!
