At of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s biography, Soul

At that time the life of the blues musicians is very heavy, even for the classmates Muddy Waters too. Blues have no place, on the radio, on television anywhere. We were all locked in the back room. And it was Stevie who unlocked it, and got us all out. Stevie opened it with her guitar. He shook, and helped us all.plagued more or less the words expressed by Buddy Guy on the introduction of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s biography, Soul To Soul written by Keri Leigh. Overrated? Well of course not, John Mayallpun in an interview with GUITAR MAGAZINE did not hesitate to call Stevie Ray Vaughan as central figure of BLUES REVIVAL II. Whereas Bruce Igllauer, founder of Alligator Records says that if a good blues musician, now a lot, but an inspiring blues musician that’s hard to get. Stevie “revived” the Blues music, by attracting rock fans, she said.Just an illustration, Blues experienced the first golden era in the era of the 50’s, especially in the early 50’s until about the mid-50’s. The main character, who else if not Muddy Waters, with the Chicago Blues. The golden age here we can mean that the blues can enter the music industry (although in this period the blues became only 2nd class music, which was only accepted by blacks). With the advent of rock’n ‘roll music, Chuck Berry, Little Richard etc, the popularity of the blues receded. Until finally rose again around the mid 60’s, with the central figure JOHN MAYALL, the Englishman, who is white. Blues accepted among the wider public than the 50’s. It is accepted among whites and any skin, including brown skin (Indonesia), becomes mainstream, becoming a trend. But around the late 60’s, early 70’s, the trend of blues receded, replaced by hard rock music, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple Black Sabbath and so on. Blues musicians scattered, only playing in small clubs. Or with the language of Buddy Guy as revealed above the blues musicians locked in the back room.
