With SXSW right around the corner, I thought I better get back in the swing of things and share a story or two about Stubb’s love of music.
We found this photo of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Stubb. Pretty cool pic. We are guessing it’s around the mid-1970’s.
SRV first met Stubb when he was in his late teens. He would regularly play at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q joint in Lubbock. Stories abound about SRV regularly blowing his earnings, stranding himself in Lubbock. Stubb would always empty his cash register and give all that he had to SRV so the kid could get back home to Austin.
Stubb loved the blues. The next time you feel like some slow and low guitar, put on SRV’s “Tin Pan Alley (AKA Roughest Place In Town).” SRV learned to play this song by listening to James Reed’s version on Stubb’s jukebox.
