Hey y'all. I came across a book called The Fabulous Vaughan Brothers: Jimmie and Stevie Ray by James Dickerson. In chapter one, there's a paragraph that reads: "During Stevie's formative years, something dreadful happened to him, something that he would very nearly take to his grave. Whether it had anything to do with his father or other family members is known only to a few confidants, but whatever its source, it had a profound impact on his later life." Apparently, it was when he was very young, perhaps as young as maybe six or seven years old.

This intrigued me, because it could very well be the root of why he did all those drugs and alcohol: to forget. My question is would anybody happen to know or read exactly what it was that happened? Abuse? Violence?

Thanks.
