Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue

Stevie Vaughan passed away on August 27, 1990 in a helicopter crash in East Troy, Wisconsin after a concert. The pilot took off from behind the stage at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre and flew into the side of a ski slope just a half a mile away. Vaughan, the pilot and three members of Eric Clapton's entourage were all killed instantly. Stevie was just 35 years old.

The statue was unveiled on November 21, 1993 and was sculpted by Ralph Helmick.

  1. Nice way to remember a famous Texan!

  2. "Hello there my old friend, not so long ago it was til the end. We played outside in the pouring rain, on our way up the road we started over again"
    His life was too short for sure, thankfully his music lives on. I'd like to see that in person and pay a tribute.
