Chris "Whipper" Layton has quite the musical history. With Stevie Ray Vaughan since 1978 and then with Tommy Shannon in Double Trouble since the early 80's. Onto the bands Storyville and Arc Angels (also with Shannon), after SRV died. He's been part of Kenny Wayne Shepherd's band for a number of years, and Whipper is the drummer for the "Experience Hendrix" tours.
In a recent interview with "Reverb", Layton talks about his time with Stevie Ray, and his friendship with Jimi Hendrix's drummer Mitch Mitchell.
