Re: When Has Bowie Not Got His Own Way? new [re: sonofsilence]  

What about when the band refused to go on stage at Philly in '74 when they found out there was to be a live release but no royalties for them. OK, they played in the end, but their performance has been described as 'pedestrian' on David Live, and legend has it that David threw a chair at one in anger......

What about Hermione leaving him? Does that count? He was reportedly devastated.

How many tattoos have you got, by the way?


I find that utterly hilarious, but it might just be the Guinness speaking. Yeah, I know I just got up (or rather came to), but I'm already on my twelfth!

How about fans walking out of Outside and Earthling concerts forcing Bowie to go back with the golden oldies for his next outings. Thats not getting your own way.

Its about time I had a signature

The Earthling tour? I didn't see any fans leave the venue I was at. And the 2 Outside shows I attended, the only fans I saw leaving were NIN fans.

Re: When Has Bowie Not Got His Own Way? new [re: Tristan]  

When he did his two concerts at the Hanover grand they were split up into two sets, a normal set and then a heavier 'drum and bass' set. On the first night, he did the normal set first and when he started doing the drum and bass stuff, some of the audience left. So on the second night he switched the order of the sets around so that they would have to stay to the end to hear the 'normal' songs.

In reply to:

Bowie sacked Vaughan. He undoubtedly was pissed with Vaughan, but it seemed quite clear Vaughan couldn't have done the tour.


I think you need to read chapter 10 "The Legend Of Ziggy Stardust And The Texas Kid" from the book Stevie Ray Vaughan: Caught In The Crossfire by Joe Nick Patoski and Bill Crawford.

I guess those weren't real fans, huh? He didn't do the drum & bass set at the venue I attended, but that alone would have been worth the price of a ticket.

That's what is says in all Bowie biographies. The info in Strange Fascination comes directly from an interview with Alomar.

I honestly can't remember whether I went on the first night or the second night, but I think it was the first night, and I don't recall people leaving after the first half. In any case, I was equally unable to breathe or move due to the crowd the entire show, so it couldn't have been that bad.

And? I don't have that book, so why not share more than the vaugeness of your first post.
