HE OWNS SOME OF THE MOST AWARD WINNING CARS that have been built during the last two decades, and , in addition, with 4 Grammies to his credit, he's one of the most respected guitarists in the Music Industry. But with all of that acclaim & recognition, JIMMIE VAUGHAN is just a music lover & car guy like the rest of us.
We had a great conversation at Darryl Starbird's National Rod & Custom Hall Of Fame and, even though he was suffering slightly from the effects of a cold, Jimmie was as nice as he could be...answering all of the questiions that I put to him. And, I DID have a lot of things to ask him about !
Some of those concerned his multiple-award winning '63 Riviera: a Lime-Gold beauty done in collaboration with his friend & fellow-Hall Of Famer, GARY HOWARD. PLUS, Jimmie's a Grammy Award Winner 4-times-over, and I wanted his input on acheiveing that remarkable accomplishment.
Jimmie Vaughan is a Texan. Born and raised in the Dallas area, now a long-time resident of Austin. He's proud of his connections with the R&C Industry, the Music Industry, and his Texas & American Heritage. He's also a great guy to know, so the next time you see him at any of the many events he attends around the country be sure to say "Hi" and mention to him that you heard some of his stories that we've presented to you in these Exclusive Interviews on the Hall Of Fame Legends Series.
Jimmie Vaughan is simply one of THE BEST ! JK
