Here are the highlights:
“He would be so proud, and so would my mother and father.”
“Our dad used to say ‘He’s a bad motor scooter,’ and he was. He was a bad motor scooter.”
“Mom and dad were real good swing dancers, and they loved music.” Vaughan says they had “hillbilly guitar players” on both sides of the family.
“Every day, I wake up clean and sober, and I think of my brother.”
