David Bowie

‘Hey Rosalyn’ was track one on the album Pinups, the second album I ever bought.  This time I hit a home run and this was an album I could be proud of.  Pinups was quickly followed into my record collection by the incredible album The Man Who Sold the World.  I was blown away by the energy on Rosalyn, the guitars and drums all seemed very heavy at the time and then at the end there was this amazing guitar slide my Mick Ronson taking them straight into the opening saxophone of track 2 ‘Here Comes the Night’.

David Bowie, what can you say about this man, probably one of the most influential artists of our time. Bowie was in my view a genius, he features throughout The Story of Rock and Roll in various chapters and fittingly one can argue that the book both starts and ends with Bowie.
