The Graceful Ways That Stevie Ray Vaughan and BB King Handled Broken Strings While Performing

Stevie Ray Vaughan

In two separate live shows, the late, great legendary musicians Stevie Ray Vaughan and BB King broke their high E strings while performing onstage in front of an appreciative crowd.

Both guitarists handled the situation gracefully – Stevie Ray changed out his guitar as if nothing happened during “What About Little Sister”, while Mr. King very elegantly changed it out without missing a single beat of “Been Downhearted“. Perfection in each situation.
