Jimmie Vaughan Recuperating


Jimmie Vaughan suffers heart attack.Grammy-winning blues guitarist Jimmie Vaughan, founding member of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, is recovering from a heart attack suffered last week in California. Vaughan was slated to play a music festival in Mumbai, but the event’s website posted a notice saying he had been admitted to a hospital with an acute myocardial infarction. He underwent an angioplasty and stent placement, was released two days later, and has been advised by doctors to rest at home for a month.

Vaughan co-founded the Fabulous Thunderbirds in 1979, which recorded eight albums before his departure in 1990 –  Girls Go Wild, What’s The Word, Butt Rockin’, T-Bird Rhythm, Tuff Enuff, Hot Number, Powerful Stuff, and Wrap It Up. That same year, he cut a duo album with his late brother, Stevie Ray (Family Style), and has since recorded several solo albums and staged many tours.
