LONESTAR: STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN REVIEWED
“Lonestar” is an unauthorized look at the rise of Stevie Ray Vaughan. A lot of this material was previously covered in Rise of a Texas Bluesman. Having not seen that original documentary in quite some time, I’m not sure how much is overlap or restating specifics. I get that Vaughan has some insane fans, but I’m not one of those floored by Texas Flood. The interviews are great, but the rare footage of SRV performing is quite solid. Focusing on those last six years of fame allows for the big fan highlights, but I’m not sure if we got to hear anything that mattered. Well, mattered outside of a Behind the Music episode.
