LEGENDARY GUITARIST, 4-TIME GRAMMY WINNER, JIMMIE VAUGHAN, IS not only a musician, but a dyed-in-the-wool car guy just like the rest of us. Jimmie's travels as a musician have taken him all-over the World; his '51 Chevy, '63 Riviera, '61 Caddy, and, '54 Ford have also taken him traveling all-over the U.S.A. !
When we got together at Darryl Starbird's for the 14th Annual HOF Induction Ceremonies (where Jimmie's friend & super-builder Gary Howard was being inducted in 2009), I wanted to go over with him some thoughts on his WorldWide Touring, how he met Gary Howard, and, also talk with him about that '51 Chevy of his...which was the first car that Gary took on for Jimmie.
Jimmie's a great guy to get to know and has some great stories to tell. He ALSO has a very good vision of what he wants in a car before, and , during the build.
Settle back for the next few minutes and listen as Jimmie talks about being in Reindeer Country, his friend Gary Howard, and his cool Chevy. JK
