GRAMMY Museum To Remember SRV
On June 12 the GRAMMY Museum will unveil Pride & Joy: The Texas Blues Of Stevie Ray Vaughan, marking the first exhibit exclusively highlighting the career of the GRAMMY-winning bluesman. Curated by Vaughan's brother, fellow GRAMMY winner Jimmie Vaughan, the exhibit will be located on the Museum's fourth floor and will offer visitors an in-depth look at Stevie Ray Vaughan's iconic career.
"I'm excited to partner with the GRAMMY Museum to honor my brother and his music," said Jimmie Vaughan. "I know Stevie's many fans will enjoy this exhibit, as many of his personal, never-before-seen items will be on display. I hope by doing this, it will remind people of the incredible musician he was and all the music and love he gave to the world. I miss him every day."
"As a former music journalist, I had the great pleasure of getting to know Stevie Ray Vaughan over the years," said GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. "Stevie was not only one of the greatest guitar players of our time, but he was also a great man. I couldn't be more excited to pay tribute to him at the GRAMMY Museum."
On display through July 2015, the exhibit will feature several guitars owned by Stevie Ray Vaughan, including his "Number One" Fender Stratocaster; early family photographs; original stage outfits, including his famous Indian headdress; handwritten lyrics; and original concert posters and tour ephemera, among other items.
