An instant New York Times bestseller!
“An oral history is only as good as its sources, and ‘Texas Flood’ is thorough and far-reaching, with Vaughan’s bandmates, crew and family taking center stage.” ―New York Times Book Review
Like One Way Out, Texas Flood: The Inside Story of Stevie Ray Vaughan debuted on the New York Times NonFiction Hardcover Best Seller’s List. It is the first biography of Stevie Ray Vaughan to involve Jimmie Vaughan and the three members of Double Trouble: Chris Layton, Tommy Shannon and Reese Wynans.
A taste of what people are saying about the book. >>
•”Its heart is Vaughan’s 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.”
Karl Richter of the Texas Observer has written an insightful, profoundly moving review of Texas Flood. We love this one!
“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.”
“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
