Stevie Ray Vaughan net worth: Stevie Ray Vaughan was an American musician and producer with an estimated net worth of $8 million dollars. Born in Dallas, Texas, Stevie Ray Vaughan had a rough home life, and spent most of his time focused on his guitar as a means of escape. He formed his first band in 1965, at age 10, and spent the majority of the rest of his school years barely able to stay awake in class, since he was playing in clubs every night. After years of toil, Mr. Vaughan finally achieved a modicum of success playing with his trio named, Double Trouble. He also worked on David Bowie's smash hit album, "Let's Dance", but declined to join Bowie's band full time. Double Trouble enjoyed massive success throughout the 80s, but had to take a break in the late 80s, when Stevie Ray Vaughan's substance abuse issues almost killed him. After getting sober and back on track, he went on to tour and record with both Double Trouble and his brother, Jimmie Vaughan, an equally skilled musician with a long career. On August 27, 1990, he was killed in a helicopter crash while traveling back to Chicago from a concert in Wisconsin.
