David Byrne Stop Making Sense IP Cassette Insert 1990

Hi All,

Here is a snapshot of me getting a Stop Making Sense cassette insert signed by David Byrne in black felt tip on July 1st, 1990 in Central Park. This is the first autograph I remember getting I believe, ever, and I am very lucky to have this snapshot of the event. At first he was leaving secretly - the stage for his outdoor concert had collapsed from rain. I was looking under rather then over things, and noticed him making a get away to a waiting cab while folks were still outside his trailer. I followed and helped him with the cab and his stuff. He asked me to hold his guitar and coffee while he opened the trunk and then signed for me - by this time everyone else had caught on where he was. He offered me a lift, which I declined unfortunately, and he swiped my pen. ;) I get nervous sometimes and make bad choices - once I was seated next to Marilyn Manson in Box 1 Row 1 at a Radiohead concert and he asked me backstage with him and that guy from the Village Voice (Michael something) and also Calvin Klein (fashion extremes with me in the middle in orange leather). I did not take this opportunity. Oh well.

Can't believe this is 27 years ago!

Hi again,

having a few extra $ I went and bought the original version cassette of this, the house mix, club mix, whatever it was called; you can tell by the lack of a barcode on the reverse between the song titles where he signed and some other things on the cassette which I actually remember. Anyway, it now has a home to go into. Again, a lot of bang for the buck, which was like $4 in this case.
