In Guido will not only a brother but a great coach and brighter over the years master of his career.
The very first master of Sandro was Alfiero accounts, good person, traditionalist who crammed all day and then ran to the gym, the gym where Sandro, then fourteen years old, did not know still hit well.

Approaching the guitar thanks to older brother, Jimmy, future guitarist of Fabulous Thunderbids, which not only offers considerable artistic ideas as an instrumentalist but introduces himself to listening to all the legends of that musical genre. In moments of relaxation, but not only, within the walls of the House resound continually notes Vaughan of masters like Albert King, Otis Rush, Lonnie Mack, to the delight of the sensitive ears of Ray, always ready to steal all the smallest details of those sacred cows.
After the first tests in duo with his brother in some classic local pop group, moved to Austin in 1972 with serious intentions, determined to prove what it's worth. Runs as a Whirligig from one group to the other, eternally dissatisfied and always looking for that "something extra" that makes the difference and that only the real artist knows.

Vaughan has 28 years and is in full artistic maturity: his solos are overwhelming and crystalline, the mastery of the instrument is of a rare quality. His voice doesn't looks good at all, making it ideal for that genre without frills which is the Blues.
A year later it was the turn of "couldn't stand the weather", the second album, as is often the case, raises many expectations. The reception is excellent and exceeds all expectations: the disc goes of in the early thirties going gold. In this album the influence of Jimi Hendrix is crucial and the version of "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" is not the usual imitation Guitarist but is a true masterpiece.
The next step consists of "Soul To Soul" (1985), which sees the Group of keyboardist Reese Wynans considered as the fourth Double Trouble.
