      I agree with you Tommy.. if SRV is still at the top now and just imagine what kind of blues he would be pumping out if he was still with us…Oh mercy…… it is truly a great loss for all blues fans. He was ahead of his time and will never be replaced. I saw him in concert just one time and its still the best I have ever seen and that was in 86 87 it was a long time ago. Been grooving with him every since.

    I come back every now and then to watch this video and every time Jonny gets up to sing his verse I get goosebumps. So much soul in his voice. R.I.P. Johnny

    I. Love. This. Song. Especially when the windows are rolled down, this song is cranked up, and cruising down the highway.

    Went and saw SRV in a bar that was a converted movie house in New Haven, CT right after he released his first album. There was maybe 50 people there when the show started and by the end there was 9 of us left. Stevie sat down on the edge of the stage after the last set and talked with us and played and drank with us for another 45 minutes or so, coolest night ever!

    Possibly one of the single best examples of The Blues–its essence, feeling, emotion, energy–so astoundingly good.  After probably 100+ times listening to this, I’m still moved every time.

    Moments like these are completely priceless and are so rare. Where Johnny Copeland gets one shot; one opportunity to make history and completely blow people’s mind and just completely NAILS IT. I think Stevie was showing him the Key they were playing in when the song started?!! And Copeland STEPS UP to the plate in a major way. Moments like these could never be duplicated.

      Dude, for real? Copepland been around for years before this performance. Why else would SRV, of all people, wanna feature him in a live show? His voice is pure blues.

      Agree with other repliers that it is worth pointing out that Johnny was already an established and well-known performer long before Stevie ever picked up a guitar. He was one of the blues musicians that Stevie learned from. We used to go see Johnny Copeland play in Houston at Fitzgerald’s around 1981-83, when SRV was first becoming known outside of Texas. Also enjoyed seeing Marcia Ball, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Angela Strehli, Alan Haynes and the Stepchildren and Little Queenie and the Percolators there.

    No words at all.  The absolute best blues duo of all time.  Hands down, no need to talk about anything else….  Speechless, just speechless after 33 years.
