Double Trouble: Been A Long Time

Double Trouble, best known as Stevie Ray Vaughn’s fabulous rhythm section, is bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton. After years of backing others, Shannon and Layton put together several ensembles of renowned musicians and recorded a heartfelt, rock-and-blues-based CD featuring their own songwriting and some unusual covers. The result, as Shannon says, is "just good music," and most rock fans should agree.
