Stevie Ray Vaughan Fan Club : Spring 1983: Renowned producer John Hammond hears a tape of the band’s 1982 Montreux performance, and is instrumental in getting the band a record deal with Epic Records. Hammond is credited with “discovering” Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, among others.
@last.fm : The three remaining members started performing under the name Double Trouble, inspired by an Otis Rush song of the same name. Vaughan became the band’s lead singer. Tommy Shannon, the bass player on Johnny Winter’s early albums, replaced Newhouse in 1981.
