The Oakland Press has taken a look back at Stevie Ray Vaughan’s and Jeff Beck’s Fire Meets The Fury Tour at Detroit’s Cobo Arena on November 3, 1989. Photographer Ken Settle writes:
“Just when you thought that back and forth between artist and audience couldn’t get any stronger, Stevie, who was looking and playing like a guy who had been transported to another dimension, grabbed a whole fistful of notes, and bent them all up about two steps, the light man hit the neck of his Stratocaster with an intense bright spotlight right at that moment, and the audience just roared. That was one of the most powerful musical moments of my career, for certain.”
