I saw the Tango tour early in October 1987. No sign of anything wrong. Stevie was alert and having fun on stage. Many times during the show she would go out of her way to get the crowd whipped up. Remember that she started with a small dose. It was not until I saw her 2 years later in 1989 that it was evident there was a problem.
Even the extensive interviews she did with MTV in 1987 were classic Stevie with no visible impairment at all. 2 years later she had the klonopin stare and seemed distant and uninterested. Like any drug she kept upping her dose over the years.
Christine on Stevie 1984: "10 years ago she really had her feet on the ground but she seems to have developed her own fantasy world, somehow, which Iím not part of. We donít socialize much."
