Billy Ray Vaughan Jr. 1981-2008

“He wanted to make it big, he really did. He could have played guitar for any band around, but he wanted to do his own songs.”

His name was eerily similar to a Texas music icon. And many people wondered if Billy Ray Vaughan Jr. was related to the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan.

'He could play like Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan,' his father, Billy Ray Vaughan Sr., said. 'Everybody asks if we're related and we're not, but it was a good icebreaker.'

Billy Ray Vaughan Jr., 26, died Thursday at his Godley home, apparently from natural causes.

'He was home by himself,' his father said. 'We're still waiting on an official ruling, but all signs pointed to a heart attack.' Read more

Just wanted to say to the family if they should happen to read this, God bless you and your family in this sad and untimely passing of Billy. I don't know of your son and his life other than what I read here today, but I feel the need to express my sorrow at his passing. I am a great fan of Stevie Ray Vaughan, another wonderful spirit who's passing was untimely. In my experience, it can only mean that God needs him as bad as we did and I hope that his memory is a blessing that all will cherish in the days and years to come. God bless Billy Ray and Stevie Ray and John (RIP).
