Horace first became aware of Stevie Ray Vaughan when he heard the David Bowie album 'Let's Dance', especially the Iggy Pop cut, China Girl. Great Power Station bass and drums but then this great guitar bit in the middle - and again at the end. The fade was too soon for him. Who was that guy? It was not until late in his tragically short career that Horace got into Stevie Ray Vaughan. Born in Dallas, Texas in 1954, he spent most of his life in the shadow of his elder brother Jimmie, a sibling rivalry that was resolved shortly before his untimely death in 1990. Stevie Ray Vaughan reinvented the Blues for a new generation of fans. He famously went 'to hell and back' - releasing his 'post rehab' album 'In Step' in 1989. For Horace it is his first release,1983's 'Texas Flood' that is his favourite. His main influences were Albert King, Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, all featured somewhere in the picture, alongside Antone's Blues club in his adoptive city, Austin and the Chivas Regal whisky that was his constant companion until 1988. To say that he lived for his guitar would be an understatement.
