    Stevie Ray Vaughan Inscribed and Signed Copy of The Eye Opener. Placed on the front pastedown of the Alcoholics Anonymous daily meditation book, The Eye Opener, the great Texas-born blues guitarist writes, "Dearest Joe / May God show you His gentle way and open your eyes to the real you - and lead you in your way home. / God bless / [signed] Stevie V." Vaughan had a long history of alcohol and substance abuse. In September 1986, while on tour in Europe with his band, Double Trouble, Vaughan was hospitalized for severe dehydration. He returned to the United States and entered a four week long rehabilitation program at Peachford Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. He remained sober until his death four years later.

    This later edition of The Eye Opener, measuring 3.25" x 5.75", was published by Hazelden in Center City, Minnesota. Bound in light blue cloth with titles stamped in silver on the front cover and spine. Light soiling to the front and rear covers, else in fine condition.
