Stevie Ray Vaughan
Eligible Since: 2008
Years Nominated: None
Why He Deserves It: This blues giant is one of the most lauded guitarists of all time. The six-time Grammy winner and five-time W.C. Handy Award winner sauntered between the blues and rock world, both on his albums and on the charts. He landed a No. 1 rock single, “Crossfire,” just months before his death in a helicopter accident. —Jeff Royer
