An instant New York Times bestseller! The first definitive biography of guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan, with an epilogue by Jimmie Vaughan, and foreword and afterword by Double Trouble's Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon. Just a few years after he almost died from a severe addiction to cocaine and alcohol, a clean and sober Stevie Ray Vaughan was riding high. His last album was his most critically lauded and commercially successful. He had fulfilled a lifelong dream by collaborating with his first and greatest musical hero, his brother Jimmie. His tumultuous marriage was over and he was in a new and healthy romantic relationship. Vaughan seemed poised for a new, limitless chapter of his life and career. Instead, it all came to a shocking and sudden end on August 27, 1990, when he was killed in a helicopter crash following a dynamic performance with Eric Clapton. Just 35 years old, he left behind a powerful musical legacy and an endless stream of What Ifs. In the ensuing 29 years, Vaughan's legend and acclaim have only grown and he is now an undisputed international musical icon. Despite the cinematic scope of Vaughan's life and death, there has never been a truly proper accounting of his story. Until now. Texas Flood provides the unadulterated truth about Stevie Ray Vaughan from those who knew him best: his brother Jimmie, his Double Trouble bandmates Tommy Shannon, Chris Layton and Reese Wynans, and many other close friends, family members, girlfriends, fellow musicians, managers and crew members.

"By collecting the voices of those who were there, authors Alan Paul and Andy Aledort get as close as possible to Vaughan's journey from record-obsessed Dallas kid to all-time guitar god, taking care to convey what made his music transcendent....Its heart is his absence, and its accomplishment is that it causes us to feel the full weight of his loss. In that, the book is its own kind of blues: stirring, cathartic, and real." --Texas Observer "Almost 30 years after his untimely death in a helicopter crash, Stevie Ray Vaughan comes gloriously back to life in this all-out biography...Texas Flood unleashes that which made Vaughan a master musician and person."--Austin Chronicle "Texas Flood adds greatly to the understanding and legacy of Stevie Ray Vaughan - both the man and the performer...Required reading for any SRV fan." --Houston Press "A dynamically vivid new book that's likely the premiere option available for anyone seeking a detail-packed, insider-style account into the life and tunes of Stevie Ray." --Dallas Observer "A fascinating backstage pass, a front row seat at the epicenter of the Texas music that unfolded in the eighties and nineties in Austin, told in the many authentic voices that shared SRV's life." --Lone Star Review "Deep reporting makes this a treasure trove for anyone interested in the blues and Vaughan's place within popular music." --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Fans will be thrilled with this intelligent, informative, and enlightening biography of the guitar great." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Riveting...Vaughan deserved this book, and, as it should, the content will stay with readers long after the last note has sounded....This is the book fans have been waiting for." --Library Journal (starred review) "A must for Vaughan and blues fans." --Booklist "What authors (and musicians, themselves) Alan Paul and Andy Aledort manage to do quite successfully with Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan is maintain the highest level of regard for Vaughan's undeniably impressive talent, as well for his devotion to late-life sobriety, while not only revealing candidly the near-lethal level of his addictions, but also his true offstage personality. Without a hint of celeb tell-all or drama mining, this is both the rawest and most reverent story of Stevie Ray." --jambands.com "Soul Brother Stevie Ray Vaughan was a force of nature! His fearless, furious and elegant approach to the guitar was breathtaking. Texas Flood helps you understand both the player and the person. We are grateful for the gifts he left for us all. We thank God for the Vaughan family; Jimmie and Stevie are both astonishing." --Carlos Santana "Texas Flood provides handy insight into how Stevie Ray Vaughan became a modern day avatar for guitar slingers and music fans the world over. Stevie devoured life in no uncertain terms and his intriguing intensity comes through with a loud and clear message in this remarkable work." --Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top "Texas Flood is a great book. It gave me a clear outside perspective into what was the center of my life, and offers a good look at Stevie and Jimmie's relationship: deeply endearing, often unseen. Good work guys." -- Chris Layton, Double Trouble "Texas Flood is by far the best book ever written about Stevie. It not only tells the story of Stevie's career as a musician, it really captures him as a human being. That is what has been missing in every book about him till now. His whole life unfolds through these pages from beginning to end. It's a great book." --Tommy Shannon, Double Trouble "The authors tell the story of Stevie Ray through quotes from the people who knew him best. And what a story it is!! Even I learned a lot reading all the details in Texas Flood." --Reese Wynans, Double Trouble "Stevie Ray Vaug
