Great stories about Rocky growing up with Stevie Ray Vaughan (simply called Steve back then)… playing with John Mayall, Mick Taylor & Glenn Hughes… really nice story about how Rocky dealt with his mom’s passing… the one critical component every song must have… great lesson for anyone early in their music career… and some great advice Rocky received from Joe Walsh & Leslie West…
