WATCH THAT MAN
21st September 2018

If you've got an hour to spare - listen to DAVID BOWIE's Aladdin Sane along with this guy having his very first listen to the 1973 album.

His reactions are wonderful. Oh to be a teenager again!

This is one of the main reasons why I set up BowieWonderworld over 21 years ago. Encouraging people, like this guy, to listen and experience David Bowie, and hopefully get the same feelings I and many others got over the years.

Whoever you are, and wherever you are, David Bowie is timeless. He will inspire you, teach you, and enrich your life and imagination beyond your dreams!



Thanks to CruelGarden on the BW MB for the pointer.


BOWIE IN UNCUT MAGAZINE
19th September 2018

Uncut magazine November 2018 For the November issue of UNCUT magazine DAVID BOWIE graces their front cover and inside is an eleven-page feature, along with TWO free art prints including one exclusive, previously-unseen image.

To REEVES GABRELS, the superstar years of his friend and collaborator David Bowie were a period of unlikely but essentially enlightening transformation. "He wasn't a pop star," he tells ROB HUGHES in this month's cover story. "He just happened to be able to make some pop records every now and then. That's how he kept the machine running. But he was an artist. The function of entertainment is to make you feel good, the function of art is to make you feel."

Reeves is one of Bowie's many confidants and co-conspirators that Rob has spoken to as part of his fascinating deep trawl of Bowie's most contentious decade.

There is further wisdom and insight from CARLOS ALOMAR, PETER FRAMPTON, NILE RODGERS and many more who argue that this period was fundamentally necessary in shaping the work that followed: as vital a part of Bowie's legacy, in its way, as his storied '70s.

This issue goes on sale from tomorrow 20th September.

AN EVENING WITH EARL SLICK
1st September 2018

An Evening with Earl Slick This month legendary American guitarist EARL SLICK - best known for his seminal work with DAVID BOWIE and John Lennon - talks about his career, performs extracts from songs and takes questions from the audience. A night of incredible stories, tunes and a look behind the scenes of a life in rock 'n' roll.

The talk/performance will be followed by an audience Q&A and then photo opportunity and autographs.

Earl Slick was initially hired by David Bowie to replace Mick Ronson as lead guitarist for The Year of the Diamond Dogs tour in 1974 (the live album David Live was recorded during this tour). Slick also played lead guitar on Bowie's Young Americans and Station To Station albums, released in 1975 and 1976 respectively.

Slick went on to work with former Mott The Hoople frontman Ian Hunter and then with John Lennon, and Yoko Ono. He performed on Lennon and Ono's Double Fantasy album. During the sessions for Double Fantasy, the material for 1984's Milk and Honey was recorded as well. He also joined Ono in the studio for her solo album, Season of Glass. Slick and Lennon were good friends at the time of Lennon's death in 1980.

Earl Slick returned to working with David Bowie on several occasions including the 1983 Serious Moonlight Tour, Heathen promotional tour, the Reality album and world tour in 2003/2004, and finally on Bowie's 2013 comeback album 'The Next Day'.

Slick conceived and presented the 2017 BBC documentary 'Rock N Roll Guns for Hire: The Story of the Sideman'.
