I think this DVD was awesome. Clapton and B.B. King were amazing, as well and Buddy Guys gutsy performance. Bonnie Rait, Albert Collins, Art Neville, and Robert Cray are all great musisicians playing there hears out for a fellow blues guitarist. What can I say, Stevie Ray Vaughan was great and these guys played a fitting tribute for one the greats. The only reason I couldn't give this five stars is because of Stevie's brother Jimmie. Jimmie is a good guitarist in his own right but not compared to Clapton, King and Guy. The whole jam at the end of the DVD is Jimmie in the front and all the others behind him playing rhythm. B.B. King playing rhythm for Jimmie give me a break. When Jimmie finally gets out of the way it's amazing to hear the other guitarist sound off. But once again Jimmie has to step out in front. Anyways the DVD is great but someone needs to tell Jimmie that you stand behind the King not in front of him.

Jimmy is SRVs brother and I respect that, but he is in no way at all in SRVs calibar as a guitar player and should not be considered as such. Anyone that can really play a guitar will tell you in a minute that Stevie had it down in full (CLEAN) you can SEE it in any video with anybody that he jammed with he had the upper hand at all times and he was younger than all of the Guitar players he shared the stage with. I've been playing for 30 years and I've copied some of the best. The difference is some of the Guitar players I've copied I couldn't see it in my mind when I heard it so I would have to hunt for it, but most of the time when I found it I could just about cover 90% of it, however with Stevie, I could see it pretty quick, but covering it was another thing even though he is pretty much in the place on the neck. Also remember he used 5 springs on number 1 and used 12-58 strings. I'll speak for myself here, but anyone that knows anything about playing a guitar can tell you that that is hard to do, but Stevie could do it. I saw and heard him miss two times in all the videos I have seen. I honestly believe EC, JW, BB King, and even other style guitar players like Eddie and Via would agree with me on what I have said. Please excuse my writing and grammer ability, but I just wanted to get the message across.
