    In March of 1976 David was arrested for Pot possesion. This was a week before my friends and i were to see him at Madison Square Garden. It turns out the Pot wasnt his but a woman who was staying with him at the hotel. David's drug was Cocaine. We were all worried he wouldnt be able to do the show. He did and what a show it was. The Blinding white light of the stage with a hint of Fritz Lang was amazing. Now the Mug Shot shows The thin White Duke in jail.

    I think your avatar looks just like the late ( and VERY great ) Ian Dury. But I must say that diamond dogs is the dukes best ever.

    My fav David Bowie "collectable" is his appearance on the British sitcom "Extras" -- this espisode is not only funny, but David Bowie shines as a real musician who doesn't need electronic embellishment to sound great.

    Only David Bowie can pull off a mug shot that's so incredibly beautiful and cool. Just about everything he touches turns into art.

    Good find! - I haven't seen those shots before.
    I didn't see Bowie live until 1983,I'd like to have seen the '76 show but he only played in London and I couldn't make it.
    David Hemmings filmed the shows but none of the footage has ever been shown,supposedly because 'Just A Gigolo' flopped and Hemmings/Bowie didn't want to remind anyone of their collaboration.

    Hemming's filmed the 78 tour and not the 76 tour. Very little footage has been seen beyond the rehearsals in Canada. Those in the know saying Bowie is sitting on all of this. Between unreleased Music and video its enough to fill an Airplane hanger. His 1995 album Outside he recorded over 28 hours of songs and only released less than one hour of it. I got a hold of 30 minutes of that 28 hours and its amazing.

    He goes by the nick Sailor. Every Bowie fan knows who Sailor is. Well posted on his site saying go meet Sailor as he comes back to New York on the QE2. I never went. He stayed and talked with everyone for nearly an hour. I missed out big time. They even did photo sessions of him on QE2

    Did you know Bowie is responsible for the careers of Iggy Pop and Lou reed? He picked them both up whilst in American and took them back to London with him for shows.

    Can you imagine the 3 greats together.. Amazing

    You're right it was '78,I'm getting confused in my old age! :rolleyes:
    Did you hear the interview with Brian Eno discussing the Outside sessions? He said a follow-up called Inside was complete,he thought it was the more interesting album of the two but the record company didn't want to release it.

    I've seen him 6 times now.If you lived a bit nearer I'd have taken you with me!
    Here's a review of the last time I saw him...

    Yes. The Album The Idiot by Iggy is one of his best. Bowie played all of the instruments on that record. My favorite Lou reed albums are Berlin and rock n' roll animal.

    Im reading Iggy Bio now, and half way through it i cant say i care much for the man. Seems like a bit of an ego/asshole. However all that has been mentioned about Bowie has been positive, He gave Iggy money, equipment, a manager, access to a recording studio and Iggy fucked it all up by not appreciating, to much drugs and Booze. It was just as Bowie was kicking off with the Ziggy stuff, which is apparently based on Iggy. So not surprisingly Bowie (and Management) finally got sick of it and pissed Iggy off

    As for Lou Reed albums - Transformer and Berlin :fing02:

    Yorkie darlin' id happily go anywhere with you

    my god was i born in the wrong era

    Interestingly enough with the holidays approaching, does anyone remember that David Bowie once did a duet with Bing Crosby?

    Yorkie. They recorded 28 hours worth of songs. The outakes are better than the album. Amazing stuff.

    I think Berlin is his best solo album,I don't have Rock n' Roll Animal.Transformer and Magic And Loss are the runners-up for me.
    I thought Songs For Drella was a great album too,where he reunited with John Cale to pay tribute to Andy Warhol.

    I expect some of it will be released eventually.It seems that record companies prefer to keep re-releasing the same old stuff in greatest hits packages rather than promote something new.
