1990 Dallas Sound Labs Interview

This is the master tape to an interview with Stevie from 19th February 1990, when he stopped by Dallas Sound Labs to talk about his live shows and his new project he was working on; "Family Style". He was in Dallas in those few months before heading out on the US portion of the "Fire Meets the Fury" tour.

The tape is a 10-inch reel with a total time of 19 minutes. It is an unedited master, and was possibly recorded for "The Live Show"

Stevie talks about setting the pacing for their live sets, playing without a set list, or being pressured to use one because of stage lighting, picking what songs go into a live set, what he likes most about being on the road, playing on a double bill with other bands, like BB King (who opened for Stevie), playing with Jeff Beck, and planning on working on the "Family Style".

Tokai Guitars Contract

It is thought that a deal was possibly being negotiated with Tokai Guitars and that Stevie received a number guitars as an incentive. However, Stevie was upset at the way Tokai had brandished his picture all over their catalogue and advertising posters and the deal was aborted. The contract below was signed, but more than likely his signature was forged by his then wife Lenny.
