    Stevie Ray Vaughan Handwritten Lyrics For "Telephone Song" From The Vaughan Brothers Album Family Style, 1990. In pencil with blue ink additions on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of lined, yellow paper. Thirteen lines in total, consisting of three fragmentary verses: "Operator help me please / Call my baby she's way overseas / You've got my number & I'm on my knees / I miss her oh so bad / Operator help me please / Call my baby overseas / Time is a wasting oh so fast / Operator help me please / Get thru to my baby overseas / Times a wastin [sic] oh so fast / Help me get her on the phone / Been too/so long (Since I ain't her the sound of her) her voice / noise / Hello baby". Using this example and SRV's other fragment of "Telephone Song" currently running in this auction, you can watch the creative process at work. Many ideas found in the lyrics would find their way to the finished song. Some modest toning to the edges of the paper with some minor chipping along the right edge, otherwise in excellent condition. COAs from Janna Lapidus Leblanc and Heritage Auctions.

    A stunning New Zealand beauty and the last love - and fiancée of legendary Blues guitar icon Stevie Ray Vaughan, Janna Lapidus Leblanc lived with Vaughan for the final years of his life, from 1987 to 1990. During that time, the successful model took multitudes of photographs documenting their life together. Decades after Stevie's untimely passing, Leblanc released Four Years in Pictures: Offstage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, a photo-heavy book giving fans an intimate glimpse into not only the couple's relationship, but his recovery, and as the title states, an offstage look at his rise to stardom.
