Like most blues guys, Jimmie Vaughan is on that endless, mindless, senseless and darn fun road trip. Yet another great musician out of the Lone Star State, Vaughan will stop by the cavernous Canyon club in Agoura Hills on Thursday night.
In a career that began back in those silly '60s, Vaughan has been places and done stuff. Perhaps best known as a founding member of a band named for a car we can neither afford nor afford to put gas in, Vaughan was the guitar player for the Fabulous Thunderbirds -- one of the most successful blues bands of the '80s, propelled by albums such as "Tuff Enuff."
He's also Stevie Ray Vaughan's older brother, and like a good brother, Jimmie taught his little brother to play. Their album "Family Style" was released just a few days after Stevie was killed in a helicopter crash in 1990.
