Rolling Stone ranked Vaughan as the twelfth greatest guitarist of all time. In 2015, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.On August 26, 1990, Vaughan performed two shows with Eric Clapton at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin. Some of the musicians boarded four Chicago-bound helicopters, which were waiting on a nearby golf course. One of the helicopters, with Vaughan and three members of Eric Clapton's entourage crashed into a hill. All on board, including the pilot, Jeff Brown, were killed.
