Oak Cliff-born blues great Jimmie Vaughan recovering from heart attack
He's doing OK and looking forward to getting back to the blues.
Oak Cliff-born-and-raised blues-guitar great Jimmie Vaughan, who’s scheduled to play the Granada Theater on March 22, is recovering from a heart attack suffered last week in California.
According to various websites today, Vaughan was supposed to play the blues-heavy Mahindra Blues Festival in Mumbai last week. But the site posted a note in which concertgoers were told that Vaughan wouldn’t make it due to an acute myocardial infarction suffered in California.
Vaughan was released two days later. We’ve left messages for his manager and booking agent, but according to KVUE-TV in Austin, he’s at his Central Texas home recuperating and says via a spokesman, “I feel really good and I can’t wait to get back to work with my band.”
