Saturday video break: Cold Shot

The one and only Stevie Ray Vaughan, ladies and gentlemen:

I had no idea SRV even did MTV-style music videos. That one was amusing, if somewhat disturbing. I like how he has an endless supply of guitars at his fingertips. And speaking of fingertips, here’s Doctor John tickling the ivories for his cover of “Cold Shot”, from the tribute to Stevie Ray CD:

If you’re even a little fan of Stevie Ray’s, the “A Tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan” CD is well worth your money. I especially like this cover because by necessity it’s different than the original, what with Doctor John being a piano virtuoso instead of a guitar god and all. The other covers are great, awesome versions, but other than this and Buddy Guy’s transcendant slowed-down version of “Long, Long Way From Home” they’re all very faithful to the originals. A little stylistic variety is always nice.
