The Austin Music History Archive posted this video to its Facebook page last week.
It’s a 5-minute interview with Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan, filmed when they were in the studio for “Family Style.”
Watch for the part where Stevie says his parents tried to keep him home after Jimmie dropped out of Kimball High School and left for Austin. Stevie dropped out of Kimball at the beginning of his senior year, following his brother, to pursue music. “It didn’t matter if they liked it or not,” he says.
