Beacon Blues
Since 1970 at the One Knite, Jimmie Vaughan's worn the smile of a blues savior
Music Story  July 16, 2010, by Bill Bentley
"...Of the holy local psych triumvirate – Conqueroo, 13th Floor Elevators, and Shiva's Headband – only the last still swung, but freedom flourished nonetheless. Jimmie Vaughan felt it when he visited from the Big D in the mid-1960s, playing sticky-floor gigs at fraternity houses around the University of Texas and finding his way to Eastside clubs Marie's T Room and Alexander's, places where the blues was a life raft for listeners who sometimes could barely afford air to breathe..."

Ostensibly a record of one mighty blues show, this film goes beyond the tag of concert film and achieves something more: a living history lesson, tracing the evolving sound of the blues.

Music Story  December 15, 2000, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Having had the Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble box set laid in front of them, the wood-grain photo on its hardcover jacket blending with the outdoor furniture on the deck at Central Market north, Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon stare at the latest packaging of their legacy somewhat blankly.

Austin's Music Class of '98
Music Story  January 23, 1998, by Andy Langer

Better yet, he stands grouped with a couple of other veteran guitar players making returns to the marketplace this year, Eric Johnson and Ian Moore..."

James Cotton's Colored Socks..."

Texas in the Title
Music Story  November 28, 2003, by Greg Beets
"...While the album failed to break Tucker as a rock artist, it did spawn a lasting country classic with "Texas (When I Die)." Tucker realizes she may not go to heaven when she dies, but as long as the Almighty lets her go to Texas, she won't complain. 19 "Good Texan," the Vaughan Brothers Songwriters: Nile Rodgers, Jimmie Vaughan Year Released: 1990 Highest Billboard Chart Position: none "Do it to me like I know you could, so I can do it to you baby like a Texan should." The grand tradition of Lone Star braggadocio reaches a new level of macho oafishness with this lyric..."

Music Story  November 17, 2016, by Alejandra Ramirez

The Adventures of Sancho Panza
Guitar Techs
Music Story  June 23, 1995
"...Paul Wittman went from being a 21-year-old kid who parlayed a talent for fixing guitars into a long-running teching gig for Jimmie Vaughan, to a 27-year-old junkie pawning other people's equipment. An age-old story in the music business that's become cliché these days - "Heroin Addict Pawns Friends' Gear" - Wittman's tale takes a particularly sad turn when one considers that his young career, built carefully and sturdily, is forever marred by some very dramatic, but predictable, mistakes..."

Crossroads 3
I went up to the Crossroads – and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – fell down on my knees
Music Story  July 2, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Mashed acoustics, a pushy waitstaff, amateur-hour drunks – where's Antone's when you're in the devil's live music venue? Clark's set primes the pump (Double Trouble/Arc Angels drummer Chris Layton) without even really trying. Jimmie Vaughan's red carpet lays perfectly...."

All Things Must Pass
Music Column  March 25, 1999, by Ken Lieck
"...Shuman further assures that the suddenness of the announcement in no way should be taken to indicate that the threesome kept the club open through SXSW in order to "take the money and walk," saying that the trio are still well in debt as the saga of the Electric Lounge comes to a close. Though they hung in there as long as they could, says Henry, "you can only eat art for so long." As for the future, the three will remain active in the music/arts community in various ways; Shuman will continue his work as a film/video producer, Henry as a performer and in other capacities, and out-of-state commuter Hughey assures that he will "continue to see live music in L.A." End of an Epic or: Vaughan Moves On..."

Roots, Reckonings, and Resolutions
Music Story  November 27, 1998, by Jay Hardwig
"...In the 40 years since, he's been a fixture on the Austin blues scene, laying down his transitional sound and taking time to school a few of the younger players who have come searching for the real thing. Like Jimmie Vaughan, for instance, who looked up Hargrove when he first came to town (pre-Storm, pre-Thunderbirds), learning at Hargrove's side..."

Texas Platters
Music Review  June 5, 1998
"...The titles, "The Men With the Burning Guitars," "Pipeline to Baghdad," "Chicks on Choppers," might tell some of the story, but really , it's the criminally overlooked Mike Vernon and his burning guitar that does most of the talking. "Island Girl" is as liquidly graceful as anything Eric Johnson ever put out and Jimmie Vaughan oughta be just a little nervous at the way "Kind of Green" shuffles into his old barroom turf..."

Music Column  April 13, 2012, by Margaret Moser

"...Immediately, I know she is bringing good news about the Awards show line-up, that 81/2 Souvenirs and the Sexton Brothers have said yes, that the Jimmie Dale Gilmore-hosted tribute to Townes Van Zandt (one is tempted to say the late, great Townes Van Zandt, among the greatest of all Texas songwriters) would include almost everyone we had talked about at first: Champ Hood and Joe Ely, and probably the Sexton Brothers, too. This time the news is that we have Lou Ann Barton, and that Jimmie Vaughan is going to be a special guest..."

Ten Fingers
Denny Freeman's 40-year Austin arc
Music Story  December 2, 2011, by Bill Bentley
"...I got sidetracked on the "Fifty Fingers" story and moved to Los Angeles instead, but for me there's an aura surrounding Freeman to this day. He went on to become a foundation of Austin music, playing in Storm with Jimmie Vaughan, forming the Cobras with Paul Ray (an early vehicle for Stevie Ray Vaughan), and being featured in groups with Angela Strehli and Lou Ann Barton before moving to California to work with Taj Mahal's Phantom Blues Band and then five years playing lead guitar in Bob Dylan's group..."
