Where: Texas/Oklahoma border, freeway

[The Vai tour bus caught fire when a generator fire started in the wee hours of the morning. The band & crew exited safely but almost all of their possessions were destroyed, including passports, wallets, eyeglasses, computers, guitars, cameras, clothing, etc. That day was a day off, which everyone spent cleaning the little clothing they escaped with, and shopping for new jackets, shoes and underwear. Because the stage gear travels separately in another truck, it was unharmed. The next day’s show went on as scheduled.]
