Double Trouble is an American blues rock band from Austin, Texas which served as the backing band for guitarist/singer Stevie Ray Vaughan.
Formed in Austin, Texas in 1978, the group went through several early line-up changes before settling on a power trio consisting of Vaughan, Chris Layton (drums), Tommy Shannon (bass). They became a four-piece by 1985 after adding Reese Wynans (keyboards).
They gained popularity after their debut album, Texas Flood (recorded at Jackson Browne’s private studio), became a critical and commercial success in 1983. By the mid-1980s, they had become an international act, touring extensively around the world until August 1990, when Vaughan was killed in a helicopter crash after departing East Troy, Wisconsin.
They have won four Grammy Awards including Best Contemporary Blues Performance for their album In Step (1989).
Greatest hits: “Change It”, “Pride And Joy”, “Cold Shot”, “Look At Little Sister”, “Love Struck Baby”, “Life By The Drop”, “Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)”, “Crossfire”, “Hard To Be” and “Scuttle Buttin”.
In August 1990, subsequent to a summer tour with Joe Cocker, the band co-headlined two shows with Eric Clapton at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin.
Following the final performance on August 26, Vaughan chartered a helicopter to take him to Chicago.
He, along with the pilot and three members of Clapton’s tour crew (agent Bobby Brooks, bodyguard Nigel Browne, and assistant tour manager Colin Smythe), were killed when their helicopter crashed into the side of a ski hill soon after taking off from a nearby golf course in the early morning hours of August 27.
Vaughan was 35.
In 2015, Double Trouble with Vaughan were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
