ON THIS DAY...
18th February 2021

On this day, 48 years ago, DAVID BOWIE performed two gigs at the Tower Theatre, Philadelphia, USA in 1973...

On this day, 49 years ago, DAVID BOWIE performed at Sheffield University in 1972...

Recollections of the 1972 Sheffield University gig...

DR. JURIJ PARASZCZAK (BSc Chemistry 1973, PhD Chemistry 1977).

"One [performer I remember] was the as yet relatively unknown David Bowie. He came into the Lower Refectory, long before the concert, to test out the sound system. As the evening folded over the refectory and darkness came through from the tall glass wall, someone from our lights' team targeted a spotlight on him and from the moment that he sat down on one of those laminated chairs in the middle of the stage all the hubbub of people going to take showers, passing through the refectory to the Union building, ceased. David Bowie commanded attention and it was obvious that he was unique and important to listen to. He came to the University on 18 February 1972."

BARRY EVERARD (owner of Record Collector in Broomhill).

"I was on the entertainment committee and very excited that he'd been booked. He was not scheduled to go on until about 1.30am. I was quite shocked to get into the room to find a guy manning the bar, and standing next to it four rather drunken lecturers chatting up four slightly inebriated girl students. I found myself the only member of the audience paying him any attention. It was amazing that somebody who would later be so central, and vital, in music, I had a virtual one-to-one with. When every David Bowie album came out, it was an event."

GLENN GREGORY (Heaven 17 and Woody Woodmansey's Holy Holy).

"I was about 12 when I first started listening to Bowie along with Bolan (Tyrannosaurus Rex) as well as bands like The Sweet and even Slade, I was a budding Glam Rocker, but Bowie's music always seemed to me to be something extra terrestrial. Words and meanings and hidden in poetic strangeness allowing personal interpretation and perfect for an impressionable eager music listener like me.

"I met Martin Ware and Ian Craig Marsh when I was about 14 and we had identical musical tastes. Bowie being one of the artists we were all most interested in. We found out that he was playing live at Sheffield University but that we were unable to get to see the gig, as you had to be a member of the Student Union to get in!

"However this did not deter us. With the aid of, can you believe it, a John Bull children's printing set and a trip to Boots in town to use the photo booth we set about making fake Student Union ID's. Actually, they were quite good and not only did they get us into the Bowie gig, we carried on using them for quite some time and saw some other amazing bands there. But I can honestly say none touched me as much as seeing David Bowie on stage that first time. It was a life changing experience. It made me want to part of the music industry, buy a pair of sky blue dungarees and dye my hair blue, it made me want to be David Bowie. Now all this time later I have the chance to live a boyhood dream."

YOU WANT MORE AND YOU WANT IT FAST
15th February 2021

Rebel Rebel UK Demo On this day, 47 years ago, DAVID BOWIE released his anthemic 'Rebel Rebel' single in 1974.

Originally scheduled for release on 1st February, it was delayed by two weeks. The RCA music press advertisement stated: 'A Valentine Day Release', but in reality it was available the following day.

Despite no official promotional video or live appearance on Top Of The Pops, the song entered UK charts at #6 on 17th February, (one place behind Lulu's cover of 'The Man Who Sold The World'), and the following week (24th) it climbed one place to peak at #5, where it remained for another week.

The single was "played" twice on Top Of The Pops 28th February and 7th March. In case you were wondering, no we didn't get the now famous AVRO Toppop Dutch TV show performance.



David was scheduled to perform live on Top Of The Pops on 21st February, but was unable to appear. Earlier on 18th February, Robin Nash (TOTP producer) contacted Ronnie Fowler (head of EMI promotion) stating that he urgently needed a live replacement. So we got an unknown band named Queen performing 'Seven Seas Of Rhye' instead.

The single spent a total of 7 weeks on the Top 50 UK Singles Chart.

#6 - 17th Feb / #5 - 24th Feb / #5 - 3rd March / #13 - 10th March / #16 - 17th March / #36 - 24th March / #47 - 31st March.

TONY KAYE INTERVIEW
12th February 2021

DAVID BOWIE 1976 world tour member TONY KAYE is interviewed by ROLLING STONE magazine, and obviously David Bowie crops up.

Highlights include:

How did you meet David Bowie and wind up on the 1976 World Tour?
I vaguely knew his tour manager from England and I was going through ... it wasn't called rehab at the time, but after going through three months at the Riot House, I had some fairly serious things going on. I went into a sort of rehab seclusion.

I rented an apartment. I didn't know many people, but one of my few friends took me to the Rainbow on my birthday for my first outing after the long seclusion. I bumped into Bowie's tour manager. He said, "Can you be on a plane tomorrow?"

That was it. I said, "Sure." He said, "Well, I'll have a limousine come pick you up." I didn't even know where I was going. The limousine picked me up, and before you knew it, I was in Jamaica at Keith Richards' house with David and the band rehearsing.

It was such a great band with Dennis Davis, Carlos Alomar, George Murray...
Killer band. Just great guys, too. Carlos was the guy. He was kind of my mentor, really. I learned everything about David's music from him.

David described this as a very difficult time where he was doing way too much coke and not sleeping. Did you sense that he was struggling, or was he doing better by the time the tour started?
I didn't get to see much of that, admittedly. But look at him on that tour. He looked great. He was the persona of the person on that stage. He didn't look raggedy at all.

It's one of my favorite tours by anyone ever. The vibe you created when you all walked out and slowly went into 'Station To Station' was just incredible.
Yeah. All those white lights and the band got to jam for 10 minutes before he came on. It was sensational. I remember playing Madison Square Garden. ... It's a shame not a lot of it was recorded or filmed. I do have tapes that I tried to get to David just before he died. I found in a box a board mix of two shows. One at Madison Square Garden and one in Paris that are just fantastic performances.

Did you give those to the Bowie Estate?
No. I tried to get a message to David that I had them right before he died. Of course, I had transferred them to digital since they were cassette tapes. I messed around with them, but they just sound so great. For board mixes, they are unbelievable.

You should really find a way to get them out. The only one show they released from that tour was Nassau Coliseum.
I only have two shows. I did hear that [Nassau Coliseum one] and the shows I have are really so much better. Maybe someone will want to release it just as a one-off thing. I should probably give Carlos a ring and see what he thinks. He's the master Bowie dude.

Anyway, the Madison Square Garden shows were so great. Everyone was there, like Lennon, Liza Minelli ... I don't think there's anyone since that has been as cool as Bowie was at that moment.

DAVID BOWIE: LIVES OF THE MUSICIANS
1st February 2021

David Bowie (Lives of the Musicians) by Robert Dimery Published on Thursday 4th February is DAVID BOWIE (Lives of the Musicians) by ROBERT DIMERY.

This first edition hardcover contains 168-pages and is published via Laurence King Publishing.

Synopsis: As with all great pop stars, Bowie's image changed with almost every new album release. This appetite for reinvention, both musically and visually, saw him dubbed the 'chameleon of pop'. But Bowie's influence extended well beyond his discography and make-up drawer. His androgynous qualities and public statements on his sexuality proved liberating for those who were uncertain about their own.

Lives of the Musicians: David Bowie covers the years he spent struggling to find the right artistic outlet to the dramatic breakthrough in 1972 with Ziggy Stardust - and afterwards, the excessive lifestyle that nearly cost him his sanity. It continues with his artistic rebirth in Berlin during the late Seventies, the mainstream success he achieved with Let's Dance in 1983 and the artistic price that he paid for it.

About the Author: Robert Dimery is a writer and editor. His previous publications include 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, Rock 'n' Roll Heaven and Cult Musicians: 50 Progressive Performers You Need to Know. He has also worked for Time Out, Vogue and Guinness World Records. He lives in London.

You can pre-order DAVID BOWIE (Lives of the Musicians) now!


BOWIE HIJACKS XFM RADIO

His words were recorded at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, London on 8th September 2003 where he played a warm-up show for his A Reality Tour, which was beamed by satellite to theatres across the world.

In 2003, while promoting his album Reality, David Bowie met with Radio X's former incarnation XFM to host an edition of the regular show The Hijack.

In the hour-long programme, Bowie talked us through some of the new songs from Reality. He also played a couple of classic songs from his own back catalogue, plus a couple of favourites.

You can either listen to the edited version of David talking inbetween the tracks below, or visit radiox.co.uk and listen to the complete radio show including all the songs he chose.
