Stevie Ray Vaughan: 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

It's hard to describe music brilliance unless you're actually there to see it. Thankfully, for those in attendance at the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, you were able to witness the best blues music had to offer.

In honor of inductee Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, a collection of fantastic musicians hit the stage. It was one of the best performances of the night.

The artists on stage took turns singing verses on "Pride and Joy." John Mayer kicked the run of solos off, followed by Doyle Bramhall II and the brilliant Gary Clark Jr., whose bluesy tone was easily the best fit for the song.

Jimmie Vaughan, the older brother of the late SRV got in on the act with his own solo, honoring his brother. When blues guitars sound that good, it could go on forever and no one would mind.
