HEAR IT! David Bowie Rehearsing With Stevie Ray Vaughan In Las Colinas

This is rehearsal audio from April 27, 1983, of David Bowie's "Serious Moonlight" tour in Las Colinas (a Dallas suburb) in Texas, featuring Stevie Ray Vaughan. Bowie famously asked the Dallas native to play guitar in his touring band but it never materialized as Bowie refused to allow Vaughan's band Double Trouble to open the tour. Vaughan was quoted as saying; "We [Double Trouble] were supposed to open up all the shows, and [Bowie] was supposed to be wanting to have us in that situation to help us out," Vaughan told an interviewer in 1985. "And as it turned out, I was supposed to quit [Double Trouble] and not have anything to do with them, not do interviews or anything. And, I’m sorry, I’ve worked for that a long time. Fame and this big tour is really not that important." Earl Slick would replace Stevie on the tour. At least we have this rehearsal audio.
