Stevie Ray Vaughan

Born: 1954-10-03 - Died: 1990-08-27
Cause of Death:
Helicopter Crash


Death Summary: Vaughan was involved in a Helicopter crash, just after performing at a concert with band Double Trouble, a show that also featured the Robert Cray Band and Eric Clapton.

He was supposed to leave by bus, but Clapton's crew had a helicopter with an extra seat and he took it. That helicopter took five people including Vaughan, and they were all killed. The official cause of Vaughan's death was loss of blood as a result of a severed aorta.

Who was Stevie Ray Vaughan : Stevie Ray Vaughan is considered by many to be one of the greatest guitar players who ever lived. He played a brand of blues-rock that is often imitated, and Vaughan's songs still get heavy radio airplay to this day.

He battled drug and alcohol problems, but as many rock stars would meet their demise from these, they weren't what took his life in the end.
