"Couldn't Stand the Weather"

"Couldn't Stand the Weather" is a song written by Stevie Ray Vaughan, and it was the title track of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's second album in 1984. My friends and I, who were teenagers learning to play guitar and attempting to form rock bands at the time, were enthralled by Stevie Ray Vaughan and loved the musical rests during the introduction to "Couldn't Stand the Weather." We thought that was sooo cool.
