Watch the trailer for "Jimmie & Stevie Ray Vaughan: Brothers in Blues".

Eric ClaptonBilly Gibbons, and Jackson Browne are among the artists featured in a new documentary, Jimmie & Stevie Ray Vaughan: Brothers in Blues.

The film tells the "never-before-told story behind [their] music as told by those who knew them best. It’s an insider’s look at their early days, the rise and the triumph of two of the best guitarists from Texas and goes deeper into their background and history than previous works because of the full cooperation of Jimmie Vaughan."

Gibbons talks about being on the Texas club circuit with Jimmie in the '60s, and the events leading up to his being a witness at Stevie’s wedding.

Clapton and Jimmie give their first on-camera interviews about what happened on the night that Stevie died, while Jackson Browne recounts loaning his recording studio to Double Trouble for their debut album, 1983's Texas Flood, and singing at Stevie’s funeral.

The film contains never-before-seen photos and home movies, and also looks at the popularity of rock bands after The Beatles’ 1964 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, and the teen club scene in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas that spawned the Vaughan Brothers and their eventual move to Austin.

The film is now available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, YouTube Movies, Cable and Satellite On Demand across North America.

Stevie was killed in a helicopter crash on August 27th, 1990 after performing with Eric, Jimmie, Buddy Guy and Robert Cray in East Troy, Wisconsin. He was 35.

Jimmy Vaughan will be in Denver with Eric Clapton at Ball Arena in September.
