This is an interesting article about Stevie Ray Vaughan’s early childhood home in Oak Cliff, TX:
Blues is the music of people who have tasted not only the sweet things in life, but also the tragedy, the struggle, the loss and redemption; not music for top 40 listeners, but for people who are willing to stare life and death in the eyes, and sing about it. The same can be said for different parts of a city. There is the “safe” and “predictable” part of town, and then there is Oak Cliff. Where else could a Dallas Blues legend like Stevie Ray Vaughn [sic] come from than a part of town that isn’t afraid to take what life dishes out and use it to cook up a song.
