DAVID AND IMAN AT STUDIO 54

Yesterday afternoon DAVID BOWIE and IMAN caught the matinee performance of 'Brief Encounter' at Studio 54 In New York City.

The Noël Coward classic is being performed by The Roundabout Theatre Company, which has an extended run until 2nd January.

'Brief Encounter' is the breakout hit from London that transforms Coward's classic tale of forbidden passion into a jaw-dropping fusion of whimsical humour, dreamy romance and stunning multimedia effects.

Actor JEFFREY WRIGHT who is currently performing on Broadway in 'A Free Man of Color' and starred as artist Jean-Michel in Basquiat with DAVID BOWIE is interviewed by nymag.com - one question asked...

Q: I recently saw the trailer for your upcoming movie 'Source Code', which is directed by Duncan Jones, whose dad, David Bowie, starred with you in Basquiat. Did he have anything to do with this upcoming collaboration?

A: You're asking if David is now my agent? [Laughs.] I had met Duncan some years ago, I think at a birthday party for his dad. So that factored into it as well. But moreover, it was this compelling vision that he brought to 'Moon', which is what drew me in. It was his work, not his father's, although I have the highest regard for his dad.

BOWIE SONG HITS NUMBER ONE!
1st December 2010

Help For Heroes single As expected the DAVID BOWIE / BRIAN ENO penned 1977 classic song "Heroes" covered by the X FACTOR finalists has topped both the Official Singles and Single Download charts in the United Kingdom.

The track is one of the fastest selling of the year, it sold 144,000 copies in its first week on release last week and went straight into the number one spot.

All monies raised goes directly to the Help For Heroes Charity.

Unbelievably "Heroes" only made it to number twenty-four in the UK charts back in September 1977 when it was first released. Since then it has become an iconic classic.

For the record, it is now David's sixth number one hit single in the UK.

'ANY DAY NOW' PUBLISHED
1st December 2010

Any Day Now by Kevin Cann ANY DAY NOW the excellent new DAVID BOWIE book by KEVIN CANN has been reviewed in the DAILY EXPRESS newspaper by Christopher Bray.

Christopher quite rightly states: "The insight the superb photographs, many of them unseen, alone gives into a man bent on stardom would arguably make Any Day Now the music book of the year.

"Given its 140-odd thousand words of wisdom, though, it may well be the music book of the decade. Christmas for the pop fan in your life is sorted."

Check out the review here on the Express website.

You can purchase Any Day Now: David Bowie The London Years (1947-1974) NOW and save a MASSIVE 40%. (Book now back in stock after pre-order sell out).


WE SAW A MINOTAUR
1st December 2010

Two privately-owned DAVID BOWIE prints are available for the art collectors out there, to be sold either as a pair or separately.

They are both from the split set 4 of the 14 sets of We Saw A Minotaur - A New Play By Joni Ve Sadd

We Saw A Minotaur - A New Play By Joni Ve Sadd: A Prelimary Sketch and The Complete Text prints by David Bowie Both are numbered 4/14 as both are from set 4 of 14 sets. They are dated 1994 and signed by his Rockgodliness!

As you might be aware, there were 14 sets of 17 prints and set 4 was deliberately split and framed at the instruction of David Bowie and his art dealer Kate Chertavian.

The fact that one day someone might want to collect them all would bump up value if you are buying for an investment. They are really beautiful to just treasure which was my intention, but alas fate the bounder has decided I have to sell.

They are titled (embossed) 'A Preliminary Sketch' and 'The Complete Text'.

'The Complete Text' is a crouching minotaur and is really beautiful, the other 'A Preliminary Sketch' is small black and white images similar to something a design artist or photographer would produce for an example layout board.

The photographs obviously don't do justice to the quality of the prints with the colour much more vibrant, its just the light I took them in.

The prints are available at £750 for EACH plus postage (as these will be valuable one day when someone wants to collect the set). As I SAY I will SPLIT them if necessary.

Please email me for further details and information at
