Tommy Conwell Autograph


















 

An autograph from Tommy Conwell.

At the tender age of 15 years old, DJ Caterina and her brother met Stevie Ray Vaughn at the Midland International Airport in West Texas. SRV shook my hand (as well as my brother's) -- and we did not get his autograph. 


I convinced my brother that we should leave him alone since he was in the middle of breakfast. But SRV was soon surrounded by other autograph-seekers  -- and DJ Caterina's brother has never let me live that down. 

So when DJ Caterina hears her brother complain for the 457th time every Thanksgiving how we met Stevie Ray Vaughn and didn't get his autograph...yeah, I'm OK with that.
