SciShow Neil Armstrong Tribute

Neil Armstrong, first man to walk on a world that was not Earth had died. Getting his pilots license before his driver's license probably didn't hurt when it came to becoming one of the world's most famous men, certainly the world's most famous space man. A remarkable man who was able to accomplish many great things, but his legacy is far larger than himself. He became a symbol of our greatest accomplishments and it is very sad to now be in a world without him.

A Tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan

Vaughan's old band, led by his brother Jimmie, and a group of big-name blues-rock stars, play tribute to the late-great blues man. Guests are B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Dr. John and Art Neville.

In between the songs are tributes by those guests, and some short excerpts of Vaughan's performances from various concerts. Those excerpts are great, and really show off Stevie Ray's extraordinary talent.
