Tony Visconti  

Bowie busied himself creating a film, set in Hunger City, using primitive video techniques. I remember helping him to construct a miniature Diamond Dogs set in his hotel suite living room, and to film him walking electronically through the set. The script was actually the videotape itself at one point. I've never seen it written down on paper, althought I'm sure it exists in that form by now.

David later explained that he had to cram Station To Station in between shotting scenes for The Man Who Fell To Earth, and there was no set schedule or method of procedure. Like most of his albums it started as a collection of demos in the studio and, at a certain point, became an official album. He was also composing and recording music for potential use in the film. I was 6,000 miles away, recording someone else. Things just worked out this way. As for Young Americans, of course anyone in my position would get upset after such hard, meticulous work, but al lthe emotions were duly communicated and no falling out occurred.

Q: How did you and Tony Visconti get back together again?

Bowie: Tony Visconti and I had been wanting to work together again for a few years now. Both of us had fairly large commitments and for a long time we couldn't see a space in which we could get anything together. As spring came around, last year, things began to ease up. I told Mark Plati and my band that I was going to disappear for a while and put this thing together with Tony. They were very understanding, they've worked with me long enough to know that we would be back together again before long.
That's when it all came together. I went over and stayed at Tony's place for a while and we talked and played around in his home studio to get a feel of what I was after. Ironically, the first piece that we recorded there in demo form and were excited about is one song that never made it to the final list. However, it was our starting point.

If David Bowie started now, record companies wouldn’t look at him and radio wouldn’t play him. Back then if you looked unusual, you had a better chance of getting played on the radio. There’s no reason why we can’t have that same freedom again. Someone somewhere is imposing it and everyone feels they have to make bland music but it doesn’t have to be that way.
