Dear David,

A friend sent me a link to visit your Stevie Ray Vaughan discussion forum today, and I really enjoyed reading most of the posts. Although I've read tens of thousands over the years, I never get tired of reading what folks have to say about Stevie and Double Trouble.

I would like to offera comment; you can choose to publically post this or not, the decision is purely up to you.

I've worked with Tommy Shannon for going on 8 years, we've beenclose friends for 11.I designed and built both the Double Trouble site that used to be online and the current Tommy Shannon site (www.tommyshannon.com). Both sites have had very large photo albums; the reason being Tommy has lead an incredible life, most of it documented with photos, which are very precious to him. He is a very kind and giving man, that is one of the main reasons he chose to share so manypictures of him, Stevie and othersthat had been previously unreleased, from his personal collection. Allhe's ever asked is that site visitors respect his requestthey remain exclusive to his site. I don't think that isunreasonable. I do know that request is honored by many of our site visitors.I've evenreceived requests from site guests from around the world that have written and asked if we would mind if they copied one or two to use as wallpaper on their personal computer, knowing full well we would never have known if they did it one way or another. Respect is a beautiful thing.

I haven't been through the entire forum yet, but I did notice that ALL the photos in hide-away's "Stevie Ray Vaughan Up Close and Personal" post were lifted from Tommy's site. As moderator, can youremove them? Tommy'ssite is accessible 24 hours a day, anyone can link to it, so it disturbs me thatpeople that claim to hold Tommy in highregard can ignoresuch a simple request. Idon't spendtime searching the web to find out who'scopied photos from his site (but they are watermarked so it's not hard to tell) but as Tommy and I discuss expansion ofhis site this type of activity is certainly a consideration on whether or not weshould add more photos in the future.

Thanks for reading my letter.

Best Regards,
Beverly

I saw this on the photo site,which i joined today,just realy to get some of the pictures there for my library of srv pictures,and that one of him playing behind his back looked familar too.So i should delete it then?,its hard to tell where they come from,i have saved many from sites and posted on some sites too,trying to give a source though i have not always done as that site too maybe got it from another site etc...So any picture you post on the net,is it realy necessary to say where it came from all the time or not. Question

I hope none of the pics in my signiture are from Tommy's site! I don't think they are, as I have checked out his sight numerous times. However, if there is a problem I would gladly remove them. Again, I hope I'm not breaking any boundaries here.

Christian
