Merry Christmas to Crazy Uncle Bubba

I found this just a few minutes ago and immediately thought of Bubba.
Stevie Ray Vaughn doing a sound check with his band in 1986, right after he woke up. You can see him yawning trying to get woke up and then it's like someone flipped a switch! About 17 minutes of pure Stevie Ray with no background noise from a crowd. You can really see and hear him hit the licks.

"Stevie just waking up then warming up. Insane how good can you really be that tired? Turn it up and enjoy. Original Source: This was filmed Jan 1986 by Greg Savage of Savage Guitar Design and is used with permission.

Yeah, I've seen that video. You gotta realize that Stevie had been playing guitar since grade school, and profesionally since he was 15. So by that time he had 20+ years of experience on his instrument. So if he couldn't play phenomenally well at that point, he should have left his guitar in the case. Doggone shame. The good always die young.
