SRV Statue Vandalized in Austin

This totally made me sick to my stomach....

Whether it was an Eagles fan, or made to look like an Eagles fan was responsible, someone vandalized the eight-foot tall bronze statue of Stevie Ray Vaughan in Austin.

They tagged it with spray paint and draped an Eagles jersey over his shoulders.

When I lived in Austin, I would visit there on his birthday, and the anniversary of his death. I did a live broadcast from the site at Auditorium Shores on what would have been SRV's 50th birthday.

Here's a photo I took of the statu back in 2002.


That stuff meant a lot to me. So, this is extremely personal.

This is the second time in a week that someone vandalized the statue.
