Jimmie is one of the great guitar players. From the moment I discovered him and his playing, he was one of my very favorites. He's also a big part of why I am Clean and Sober today going on 27 years this December.

I wrote this a couple years ago, here's the link; Tom Stokes Facebook Post 

 "As the Holidays approach I often think back how I thought it was funny how people use that as an excuse to get drunk SMH...


I always had a reason to get drunk ... the last few weeks been pretty trying especially with Cowboys playing like they are ha ha ...


I've looked for this interview with #StevieRayVaughan talking in detail about his recovery and sobriety, finally found it ... All real, all raw.


Stevie goes into detail about the craving and obsession of alcohol and his recovery. Several of you know about my sobriety and although I feel like there is a Higher Power that's kept me clean and sober for going on 26 years, I really was influenced by Jimmie Vaughan and Stevie Ray Vaughan at a AA meeting in South Louisiana.


When I met the brothers at a treatment center for a meeting and thought afterwards "Hey!! If these guys can stay clean and sober so can I" ... Enjoy the interview and be safe this Holiday season."
