About this title


Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan-two sons of Texas whose pyrotechnic guitar work introduced an entire generation to the blues-are given full biographical treatment by a writer who tracked their careers for five years, until Stevie Ray's sudden death in 1990, and afterward as Jimmie pursued a solo career that continues to flourish.
Based on scores of interviews with such well-known contemporary musicians as B.B. King, Robert Cray, Ron Wood, the late Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and others, The Fabulous Vaughan Brothers follows the two brothers from their modest Dallas roots to their emergence onto the Austin music scene. The brothers' subsequent recording experiences in Memphis-which the author sees as being crucial to their overall development as musicians-are also described, as well as their early bands and, of course, their work together on Family Style.

About the Author:

The author of fifteen nonfiction books, more than 2,000 magazine and newspaper articles, and numerous poems and short stories, James L. Dickerson has worked as a magazine editor, newspaper editor, reporter, columnist, book critic, photographer, social worker, and psychological consultant, over a career that spans thirty years. He was a staff writer at five Southern daily newspapers and his byline has appeared in a variety of publications, including Good Housekeeping, Omni, Glamour, the Baltimore Sun, and the Toronto Star, to name a few. He is considered an expert on American pop culture and the music indigenous to the South-blues, rock 'n' roll, jazz, and country music. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Goin' Back to Memphis and That's Alright, Elvis (which he co-wrote with music legend Scotty Moore).
