You only see this kind of musical wonders a few times in your life. Those who bring the music with heart and soul, and give there their own recognizable, great sound, that makes many people shine.
Actually, the reason Stevie got booed, was that a lot of the crowd assembled, here were expecting acoustic and electric jazz. They weren’t expecting to get their faces melted off by an unknown Texas bluesman. So many times, people are witness to a remarkable event in history, and they aren’t even aware of it, much less appreciate it. Too bad the audience’s tender sensibilities, were offended. They were witnessing a star, rising. And they didn’t even know it. Rest in peace SRV!
