It nearly saved his life. Caught in the Crossfire has a lot of information, and a useful Notes section that lists articles and other books. One interesting thing is that the chapters about growing up and early days in Texas contain nearly as much information about his brother Jimmie Vaughan as about SRV himself.

Emerging from the hotbed of Texas blues, Stevie Ray developed his unique style early on, in competition with his brother, Jimmie, founder of the Fabulous Thunderbirds.

At least that’s the portrait painted by Joe Nick Patoski and Bill Crawford in Stevie Ray Vaughan: Caught in the . Even so, given that Vaughan’s career in the big leagues lasted only seven years and six albums, is there enough for a book? Surprisingly, yes.

Vaughan may have had a wife, a guitar-playing brother, and party-hearty pals on the Austin music scene, but his best friend remained his six-string. In one of the book’s most telling anecdotes, Vaughan’s wife asks him to hold a guitar while they’re having a heart-to-heart so he can feel more at ease.

Now available in paperback, here is the bestselling biography of America's last guitar legend, Texas firebrand Stevie Ray Vaughan. Hailed the greatest guitarist since Hendrix, Vaughan emerged from the hotbed of Texas blues to develop a blistering, unforgettable style all his own. "A rich, complete, and loving portrait."--Detroit Free Press.

  • Jwalextell
The authors definitely spent some time researching for this book. The result is a candid, close look at a guitar legend that died so young.
This book goes beyond the rock star image and shows the human side of SRV. He was human and imperfect. He fought a lot of battles with addiction and in the end he conquered the drugs and alcohol while still actively maintaining his musical career.

It's a story of an insecure boy's determination and dedication to the craft of playing guitar that led him to stardom.
Along the way he lived the lifestyle that other famous musicians experienced, his story is that of a survivor and arguably one of the most gifted guitarists of our time. And he never forgot the roots of the blues and the musicians that started it all.
I always liked Stevie Ray Vaughan's music, and after reading this book I have a deeper appreciation for his music.

After reading several other biography's of SRV including the monster 2 volume day after day, night after night. This book approaches the subject matter less starry eyed. If you were in the Dallas. Austin musicians circle of the mid 70 to mid 80's this is exactly the kind of behind the scenes only you could put together. Hats off the Joe for producing such a honest look at a very talented kid, who had exactly the same faults many of us, either have or have seen in others. Being a broke musician and bumming around for paying gigs (sometimes in places less than pleasant). To be with your friends and play your music for the love of it. That's paying your dues.

This is the first book that I can honestly say, I'll read again over the summer. No where else have I heard Tommy's nickname, or some of the nick names given to Stevie by his band mates. Certainly there's information here you'll find no where else.. I couldn't put it down and at about a inch think, I finished it in just a few days. If you're a SRV fan, and a fan of the blues/rock crossover, I think you'll like this rags to riches to near death to full life.... and back story.

Gave to my Son as gift, he is big Stevie Ray fan. I purchased previously for myself and it is a must read for all fans of the late SRV.

Great book, could not put it down. Had been wanting to read a book on Stevie Ray Vaughn for years. Saw him in concert in 82 in Detroit Cobo Hall as warmup band for Bob Seger. Have all Stevies albums/CD's and this book was a great read. I've since loaned it to numerous people who wanted to read it. Highly recommend.

Very detailed. The author conducted what must have been hundreds of interviews with friends, acquaintances and family. He consulted as many newspaper and magazine articles and no doubt walked the streets of Austin and Oak Cliff. The result is a detailed description of his subject and the environment. Yet it's not a forest for the trees situation. The details do not drown out the overall story. Sometimes excessive details can make a book boring or hard to follow. Not in this case.

The author begins the story with the Vaughan's migration to Texas from Kentucky. He also describes the evolution of Dallas as a music town starting as early as Blind Lemon Jefferson. Stevie's years as a school boy in Dallas, his years playing small clubs in Austin, and his nonpublic life are described in as much detail perhaps more indepthly than his life as a famous blues superstar.

SRV lived his entire life the same way he played guitar: pedal to the metal. Drugs, girls, partying, jamming were all done fast and hard until he passed out from exhaustion. After 18 hours or more of sleep, it would start all over again.

After decades of life pedal to the metal it is amazing that he survivied. But he didn't just survive. He cleaned himself up and became a better person. It seems like he was a nice person. He spent a lot of effort helping other musicians especially underappreciated blues musicians. He insisted that his Double Trouble bandmates received the same salary as he even though clearly SRV was the only reason people came to see Double Trouble.

The book also explores the mystery of the 1982 Montreaux Jazz Festival performance where the band was booed. Besides a couple of freaked out hippies dancing in front, the rest of the crowd (probably arthouse goons) sat and watched the performance in contempt and booed enthusiastically in between songs. The book offers an explanation, but perhaps in some minds the crowd's behavior at that event will remain an enigma.

Summary: good book, well written. If you like SRV, then you won't regret having gotten this book.

I originally bought this book in 1993 when it came out. Just an amazing biography fitting for arguably the most amazing guitar player of all time. The worst part of the book is the ending. You know the outcome you just keep hoping the story doesn’t end as it actually did.

Before reading the book, I knew little of the man, yes I was familiar with his music but knew little of his background etc. So an education and interesting, but totally tragic story.
