Original site launched 1998. This site launched on October 3, 2020. There is a lot more content to add as time permits. A brief description of updates will be posted below with the date of each entry. This will be an easy way to see what has changed since your last visit.
2022-11-27 The book proofing process continues with the printer. Also, the payment processing for credit cards through Stripe has now been tested without any problem. I will also be able to accept Zelle payments and ApplePay. Overseas customers may also have additional payment options. No more PayPal!! What a relief to have easy alternatives to that awful company.
2022-11-14 The book has been sent to the printer. The proofing process will require about a month to ensure high quality.
2022-11-10 Excellent news today! I have made a deal with a different printer in order to have the book printed on acid-free paper. I have been disappointed in the yellowing of the previous edition’s paper after 12 years because it was not acid-free paper. The new edition will be a conservation / museum quality book. I hope to submit the book to the printer this afternoon. Once I see the proofs next month, I will begin advance orders. I believe that this is the most complete biography of Stevie Ray Vaughan that will ever be published, and it will be created using higher quality materials than all previous editions.
2022-11-9 The good news is the payment processing glitch is resolved. However, I slammed on the brakes to investigate a possible printing improvement – cost will determine that issue. Hope to have that resolved today. The best practice is probably to wait to take advance orders until I see the proofs. That is likely early December.
2022-11-3 I have sent the book to the printer! I may wait until I see the proofs before taking advance orders. I still have a glitch with payment processing to work out, too. I have put some more info on the book page.
Thanks to the folks who have been spreading the word about the new book on social media!
2022-10-25 Added several of Stevie’s guitar picks to the items for sale.
2022-10-25 Just finished a lengthy new interview with Janna for the revised book. After that I need to finalize the cover design and actually place the order for printing. I should be able to begin taking advance orders in the next couple of weeks, starting with those who have recently asked for notification. I am still planning a run of only 500 copies. A word about pricing – it’s a big book and printing costs have soared, as have shipping costs overseas. It will be the most expensive book I have produced, but priced well under what some of the collectible limited editions run. The printing costs for 500 is more than what it cost for 3000 copies in 2008!
2022-10-13 BIG BOOK NEWS! Hardcover, 600 pages, new photos, updated concert dates, new information, new interview with Janna Lapidus, plus minor corrections throughout! This time it will be a single volume, not two like the 2010 edition. I am self-publishing a very limited edition of 500 copies only of the revised and FINAL edition of Stevie Ray Vaughan: Day by Day, Night After Night, updated to include never-before-seen photos from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction weekend in 2015. The new cover features one of Robert Knight’s historic photos of Stevie from the final jam at Alpine Valley. Use the contact info to sign up for more information and be notified when you can order (it should be in the next few weeks). I need to hear from you to know there is still enough interest for me to go to this huge expense for Stevie’s great fans.
2022-05-26 Added photos of the SRV guitar picks I have for sale. I have not had any to sell for some time, so strike while the iron is hot. See the Virtual Garage and Collectibles Sale, Stevie Ray Vaughan page.
2022-05-15 Added to the Virtual Museum: Jimi Hendrix stage-worn shirt, Buddy Holly stage-worn sweater, Beatles “Livingston butcher cover” and Luka Dončić signed jersey.
2022-05-09 Next week I should have six guitar picks for sale with Stevie’s name on them, for those who have been asking while I was out of them. These are among the rarer styles – the last of the three early varieties with “Stevie Ray” and no last name. These were ordered by Charlie’s Guitar Shop in Dallas ca. 1984-1985. Also, a sale fell through on a Fender pick actually used by Stevie. Let me know if you are interested.
2022-05-09 I have a huge David Lindley archive/collection for sale. Almost 300 items. See the sale page for more details. Will make a huge deal for the whole collection. UPDATE 5/14/2022 There is now a David Lindley Archive page under the Virtual Garage Sale.
2022-05-09 Due to a dispute with the publisher, I am no longer planning a revised edition of the book as described below. We’ll see how it gets resolved in the coming months.
2022-04-06 Added a guitar pick used by Stevie for sale.
2022-04-06 Some news about the upcoming Revised Edition of Stevie Ray Vaughan: Day by Day, Night After Night — The new edition will be released in softcover and available in the usual online book retailer websites such as Amazon. However, there will be a VERY LIMITED number printed in hardcover (100 to be exact) that will only be available directly from me. I will be happy to sign and personalize your copy. The cost to have these 100 copies made in hardcover is expensive, and the price is $145 plus s/h. You can pre-order now by contacting me.
2022-03-08 I am looking for fans of guitarist and multi-instrumentalist DAVID LINDLEY of El Rayo X, Jackson Browne and Kaleidoscope fame. I just acquired a David Lindley archive of about 150 items from an estate, and it needs a new home. Many autographs, posters, recordings, photos, shirts, etc. Contact me if you are interested.
2022-03-08 An update on the Revised Edition of Stevie Ray Vaughan: Day by Day, Night After Night — I have finished the new material, edits and corrections for what is almost surely the last edition of the book. It has run its course in hardcover, and is transitioning to softcover with new content (particularly the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). Look for it this Fall. It will be back to a single volume! I am hoping to be able to offer a very limited, signed hardcover edition, but I do not know if that will happen yet.
2022-03-08 I have added another story to the Stevie Ray Vaughan “Miscellaneous Information” page. This time it concerns Stevie recording commercials for Pepsi, and supplements the information in the book.
2022-01-19 I have added a new page to the Stevie Ray Vaughan content, called “Miscellaneous Information.” The first post there was submitted by the man who built two of Stevie’s amplifiers.
2021-05-24 Updated the Collectibles Museum page with a few sports-related items.
The SRV biography will be reissued next year, as I noted last month. The latest news is that it is going to be revised to include approximately 12 new pages plus some minor edits throughout. The major addition will be coverage of the Rock Hall of Fame induction weekend, with never-before published photos from rehearsal with John Mayer, Doyle Bramhall II, Gary Clark Jr. and Double Trouble, and also the exhibits related to the band that were on display in the museum. Discussions are ongoing regarding the possibility of a short run of hardcover copies (maybe one or two hundred only) in addition to the primary run of softcover books.
2021-04-19 I have added a page for a home and income-producing real property for sale in Weatherford, TX, 30 miles west of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. It has been in our family for 50 years. Estate sale coming this summer.
2021-3-31 Good news! I have agreed to allow the publisher to reissue the book (probably with some revision) in 2022 as a single-volume softcover edition. I will post notice when I get a release date. The current edition’s first volume had become difficult to find, so this will bring everything back together as it was originally released and intended, and it will be less expensive in softcover.
2021-3-21 Added another item to the Virtual Museum Beatles page = Cavern Club membership card for 1961. I continue to subtract items from the Virtual Garage and Collectibles pages as items are sold. I’ll add some more items eventually. Also, I am negotiating another printing of my book, but even if we agree it won’t be out until 2022. It may be somewhat revised and updated.
2021-2-26 I am adding a number of items to the Virtual Museum Beatles page, and a primer on the most important performances they gave. The list was created in furtherance of putting together a collection of tickets/stubs to these shows. Some are exceptionally rare.
2021-01-06 Noted on the book pages that all my books are now sold out except for the 2nd volume of the third book, subtitled His Final Years, 1983-1990. To find the other books you’ll have to search online. Occasionally I may have some on this website – check the Virtual Garage and Collectibles Sale pages.
2020-12-11 I have been keeping up with marking things SOLD, but today I went through and deleted all the items in the Virtual Garage Sale that have been sold. Should make browsing faster. Contrary to the old SRV website, I am keeping the collectibles for sale much more up-to-date.
2020-12-09 Added a couple of more rare items to the Virtual Museum – Beatles. Also, I am now listing things on eBay again to clear out part of the Virtual Garage Sale, but it is potentially less expensive to contact me directly rather than using eBay. Sales have been pretty good, so don’t delay.
2020-11-29 Added a number of items to the Virtual Garage Sale, Virtual Museum and the SRV counterparts of those pages. Please also note that I am now sold out of books, but they are still available from online retailers and bookstores. If you cannot find the latest edition, please let me know.
2020-11-18 Noted in the Stevie Ray Vaughan Collectibles For Sale page that I have only ONE set left of the 2-volume Day By Day, Night After Night books, and ONE extra copy of volume 1. Since 1996 I have sold approximately 20,500 books — Thank you!
2020-11-16 Added a very rare 1962 Beatles concert ticket to the Virtual Garage Sale-Beatles.
2020-11-14 Added new item to Virtual Museum – The Beatles (ticket to the Fab Four’s first ever concert.
2020-10-28 Added 25 images to the Virtual Museum – Other Favorite Automobiles page.
2020-10-20 Added a couple of photos to the Celebrity Encounters page.
