DeVille-fan Michael said about this photo nd period:
"I saw him perform before a small crowd in Philadelphia at the Ritz on South Street during that time period. He had this hot Mediterranean-looking girlfriend wearing a short black dress with spaghetti straps with a spider tattoo on the back of her right shoulder. She walked out onstage in the middle of the show, whispered in Willy's ear and they walked offstage briefly for what assumed, given the venue and the time period, was a drug break".
