Hi. I have been commissioned by Esquire magazine to do a series of interviews and articles about David Bowie. I first arrived at Bowie's NY apartment last week, 10/02/08 for my series on him.
I am greeted at the front door graciously by Bowie himself. He looks thinner and more fit than in recent pics. He is wearing black jeans, a black leather jacket, and black boots. He leads me in the living room. I meet Lexie and Iman and Iman asks if I'd like coffee. I say yes.
The first thing I notice in the room is a Stratocaster hooked up to a tweed amp. Bowie grins that vulpine grin and tells me he is writing a new album. I ask about it He grins and says, "Sure, I'll tell you all about it."
