When Has Bowie Not Got His Own Way? new  

Not that he's a demanding type of person. But there have been times when he hasnt got his way. like in 1978 when he wanted brian Eno to tour with him sbut he never did. Im sure Bowie was a bit pissed by that.

And then in 1983 when Stevie Ray Vaughan never went on the road with him.

Also the fact that Kraftwerk never collaborated with him, i beleive he was really keen on teh idea himself.

He was really keen on the release of Toy yet it was shelved.

The refusal from Mrs. Orwell for the 1984 musical is another example of him not getting his way.

Kling and Klang [re: sonofsilence]  

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

Also for Kraftwerk collaboration, it seems it wasn't Bowie who was most keen on the idea but Kraftwerk themselves (not that Bowie wouldn't have wanted to collaborate). And Bowie did get to visit Kling Klang Studio as one of the few people ever allowed to visit the place, and he was on close terms with Kraftwerk for msot of the 1977 and '78. As I've pointed out elsewhere, it's even possible that a Bowie/Kraftwerk collaboration piece exists, but neither party was satisfied enough with it to have it published. Considering we're talking of two of the most secrecive acts in pop music, it's not surprising the recording hasn't surfaced even though it would undoubtedly have notable mass appeal. If it really exists, all this is obviously theory.

And for times when Bowie couldn't get his way... in 1976 Michael Rother, the guitarist of Neu! (another German group who arguably were a bigger influence on Bowie during the late 70's than Kraftwerk) refused to play guitar on the Low sessions.

Just Did Not Do It new [re: sonofsilence]  

I refused to buy "Tonight" on CD. The only exclusion of my vinyl to digital Bowie update. That should teach him a lesson.
