Description

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Black long-sleeve, button-down ruffled shirt with a G. HQ. manufacturer's label, featuring bronze cuff links and buttons, and emblazoned with a sea of shimmering rhinestones. In fine condition.

The consignor's LOA reads in part: “I played dozens of shows with SRV as an opening act while a member of the MCA recording act Broken Homes. A benefit of this association was the development of a professional and personal relationship with Stevie….a generous soul who often gave the members of my struggling band gifts of instruments, clothing, records, and more…..a genuine friend to each of us. He had worn this black ruffled shirt more than a few times and after one performance, I mentioned to him how great it looked, and how dramatically it caught the lights. I told him I loved it. Later that night, his road manager, Bondo, who also took care of us, came on the bus and handed me the shirt with SRV's compliments. I recall it was still wet and I was thrilled. It was a gracious, thoughtful gift, although the gesture was not an unusual one for SRV.”
