Blues queen Bonnie Raitt got sober when she watched party pal Stevie Ray Vaughan clean up his act on tour.
The Something to Talk About singer admits she was one of the last people in her circle of friends to quit boozing and seek help - and it was the late Stevie Ray who finally made her see sense.
She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "When we toured together it was quite apparent that we were pushing the fun button. I was 37 and chunky (and) a bunch of friends of mine were getting sober, and so did Stevie Ray.
"When I saw him play sober, I knew it was time to grow up."
