Re: Favorite musician not known to the general public
This goes back a few years, but.....
I remember seeing Stevie Ray Vaughan on SNL in 1986 and I was mezmerized. But, of course, he never had any songs that played on Top-40 radio, so he was virtually unknown to the masses and even the teenage aspiring guitarists like myself at the time.
From that time until his death four-and-a-half years later, I would force my friends to listen to him and I would force them to agree that SRV was placed here by divine intervention.
Of course, after his death, everyone suddenly claimed he or she had enjoyed SRV for many years.
