    I was at the sunday nite show with my fiancé, we stayed at the resort that night which gives you access to the backstage area before and after the show with your room key and ticket stub. so after the show we decided to hang out a bit to see what we
    could see, the fog ceiling was so low and thick that when a man came out and yelled "everybody has got to move the choppers are almost here" I looked at my fiancé and said "you got to be kidding me they are flying in this" and low and behold you could
    here them coming all 4 of them landed and shut engines down, then we sat down on the grass and waited for Stevie to come out, it was not a short wait, the show itself was over before midnight,and I'd say the choppers took off a little before 1am I think
    stevie was in the 3rd chopper to take off, I still could not believe they were flying that night??? so we walked up the golf cart path to the resort,and turned in for the night, little did we know that Stevie had crashed into the ski hill behind the
    resort and bled out before we even fell asleep,WOW!!! I was standing right there when they took off didn'nt hear a thing no explosions no fire.When we got up in the morning we went downstairs to have breakfast I'd say between 9 and 10 the restaurant was
    packed so we hit the road back to Chicago,on the way out we thought it odd that there were so many sattelie news trucks parked all over the roads leading out, we left anyway. I decided to call my mom on my new truck cell phone and she asked if we were at
    the Eric Clapton concert last night, I said yes, she proceeded to tell me that one of the choppers crashed into the ski hill right behind the stage, at first I believe they were saying that Clapton died and later changed it to SRV I was floored and mad
    that they were even flying that night!!! so come to find out that they were flying VFR and not instrument flying I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYBODY SAYS THERE WAS NO WAY TO FLY THAT NIGHT!!!! VFR (visual flight rules) the fog ceiling at 12:45am that night was at
    the most 30' to 40' max, I believe they all had a case of "get there itis" that night wanting to get back to Buddy Guys bar and because of that we lost SRV forever pretty sad!! so now it's 30 yrs later and there still is no one who can play a guitar
    like him that have I have heard ever!! So I say to all SRV fans make the pilgrimage on aug 26 this summer 30yrs gone by, and I will see you there, this is the real story I was there. Thanks for listening. Johnny "B" now living in Lake Geneva Thanks
