Stevie Ray, the Heavy Metal Kid

Posted: September 17, 2011 in 21st Century, Rock n Roll

Art has kept a low profile lately, and now we know why — he’s secretly been rehearsing a Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute called “Couldn’t Stand the Sweater”, or something like that. Maybe it’s “Texas Fart”? (OK, gang, just kidding — Art is merely having fun at a party, and yours truly is accompanying the resulting photos with some witty remarks. You heard it here first that the CD is still imminent and is awaiting release and/or escape.)

Amazing what that the famous SRV hat will do to resurrect “Tex Himself” from Tex Critter and the Rancid Rangers!  I remember a Japanese blues magazine presenting music of “the laminated Stevie Ray Vaughan”, and here, Art upholds the tradition. So what song was he playing here? I do believe we’re viewing photos of a performance of “If Art’s Truck is Rockin’, Don’t Bother Knockin'”, or “Get Off the Table, Mabel, the Dollar’s For the Beer”. Shortly after the photo was taken, he was heard to say, “thank ya, thank y’all very much. OK wranglers, let’s git ta wranglin’!”

These photos were taken during a recent visit to Vernon and featuring the whole fam damily — photos by Rosie.
