Fender Players Club - Jimmie Vaughan (320 words)
Born in Dallas, he caught the blues fever from listening to the radio and old records, and was transformed by seeing Muddy Waters perform live as a teenager.
Vaughan developed his signature style, described best as "less is more" - sparse playing that allows for a gritty, emotive style - and has a reputation for letting simple lines do the talking.
It was a great album that combined the strengths of both brothers, but it was soon followed by tragedy with the untimely death of Stevie Ray.
