This day in HISTOROCK !! Stevie Ray Vaughan !!


       This day in HISTOROCK !!


                In 1990, the world lost an incredible talent when Stevie Ray Vaughan was killed, when the helicopter he was flying in, hit a man-made ski slope while trying to navigate through dense fog. Vaughan had played a show at Alpine Valley Music Theater, East Troy, Wisconsin with Robert Cray & His Memphis Horns, and Eric Clapton. Vaughan was told by someone in Clapton's crew that three seats were open on a helicopter returning to Chicago with Clapton's crew, but it turned out there was only one seat left. Vaughan's brother had the last seat, but gave it up to Stevie when asked. Three members of Eric Clapton's entourage were also killed. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Stevie Ray Vaughan #7 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitarist's of all time !! About a year earlier on Aug 10/1989, SRV played here in Moncton,NB with the Stray Cats opening. I had managed to get tickets and backstage passes to the show, but was unable to get out of work. Major regret :-( Stevie came to prominence after performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1982 !! People magazine's James McBride had this to say about Vaughan's performance : "He seemed to come out of nowhere, a Zorro-type figure in a riverboat gambler's hat, roaring into the '82 Montreux festival with a '59 Stratocaster at his hip and two flame-throwing sidekicks he called Double Trouble. He had no album, no record contract, no name, but he reduced the stage to a pile of smoking cinders and, afterward, everyone wanted to know who he was" This performance also caught the attention of David Bowie who called SRV to ask him to play on his new album Let's Dance !! SRV played on 6 of the 8 songs and also went on tour with Bowie, elevating his bright star even higher !! SRV found his own success with the release of Texas Flood in 1983, scoring hits with "Love Struck Baby' & Pride And Joy !! He went on to release 5 more albums including "Family Style'' with brother Jimmy and his last release before his death, aptly titled  "The Sky Is Crying" !!  On Stevie's last tour, here are some of the legend's that opened up for him : Stray Cats, Jeff Healey, BB King, Jeff Beck, Albert King & Buddy Guy !! What a list !! It's been 24 years since we lost Stevie, and the sky still cries !! Check out this awesome 1 hour  live video of SRV filmed in Toronto,Ontario at the El Mocambo nightclub !! RIP Stevie !!  




Keep on ROCKIN !!

This day in HISTOROCK !! Bohemian Rhapsody !!




       This day in HISTOROCK !!



                        In 1975, Queen started recording "Bohemian Rhapsody" at Rockfield studio's in Monmouth, Wales. The song ended up taking 3 weeks to record. Freddie Mercury had mentally prepared the song beforehand and directed the band throughout the sessions. May, Mercury, and Taylor sang their vocal parts continually for ten to twelve hours a day, resulting in 180 separate overdubs !! And what an AMAZING song it turned out to be! At first Queen's record company EMI didn't want to release it as a single. They said the song had no chorus, instead consisting of three main parts: a ballad segment, an operatic passage, and a hard rock section !!  And clocking in at almost 6 minutes, it couldn't be edited without destroying the integrity of the song !! That all changed after the band gave a copy to DJ Kenny Everett - who played it on his Capital Radio show in London 14 times over one weekend, eventually persuading EMI and other sceptics that the listening public could handle this incredible piece of music !! Thank you Kenny :-) "Bohemian Rhapsody" became a monster hit, staying at the top of the UK charts for nine weeks and selling more than a million copies in a couple of months !! This song has gone on to become a rock'n'roll CLASSIC !! Apparently Freddie had the idea for the song in the late 60’s when he came up with the line "Mama, just killed a man." !! A song that is almost instantly recognizable, just from the opening line or the operatic passage with chants of Galileo and Mama Mia that stick in your subconscious forever !! At the time it was the most expensive single ever made and remains one of the most elaborate recordings in popular music history !! Back in the day, they had to overdub themselves many times and "bounce" these down to successive sub-mixes. The various sections of tape containing the desired submixes had to be spliced with razor blades and assembled in the correct sequence using adhesive tape !!  WOW and today just the click of a mouse :-) Some 20,000 people bought "Bohemian Rhapsody" every day in its first three weeks, it's been #1 twice so far and it's played on a radio somewhere in the world about once an hour – every day !! Without further adieu, I give you the Freddie Mercury masterpiece, performed by Queen !! Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality. 


Keep on ROCKIN !!
