David Showie [re: tonyinsf]  

On Dave Fanning's radio show here recently, Fanning was interviewing people playing in Dublin soon. First up was Iggy Pop. After the perfunctory Stooges question, Fanning goes straight for it:
"In the mid 70s, you worked extensively with David Bowie. Would you agree that he was using you and got a lot more from the relationship than you did?"

Iggy's answer was basically - everyone uses everyone, and sitting around analysing whether you're using or being used more is a very sad way to live your life, and all that matters in the end is the work that results. With Bowie I recorded maybe my two best albums, so the partnership was a huge success for me. He also gave me some great tips and ideas on melodies, production and business. He gave me an entree to Britain, Germany and Europe. Before that, I just had America, and without Europe, I'd have been screwed, because since then it has been Europe that has sustained my career, not America. For that, I owe Bowie a big thank you.

Undaunted, Fanning pushed on:
"Yeah, great albums. At the other end of the scale, there's Blah Blah Blah, which I'm sure you would agree is not one of your best, and there's David Bowie again".

Iggy's response was - Blah Blah Blah was the best album I could make at that point, it's foolish to blame it on anyone else, and I think there's some good stuff there. Real Wild Child was great, and massive for me, and again Bowie had some brilliant ideas there. It was his idea to have me sing it in a lower register, which makes it. I think it's very well produced, and Bowie deserves credit for that. It's not his fault I wasn't in a great place with the music business right then".

After Iggy, Mozza was next up. Quelle contrast.

"You toured with Bowie but cut it short. Was that because you were embarrassed, or he treated you badly?"

Mozza's answer was yeah, kinda, by then Bowie was an embarrassment, more David Showie (as in showbiz). He said Bowie wanted him to do a few Bowie songs in his set (which "I thought was wrong"), then a duet (ditto), then "I'd finish up by fading away while he came on" (ditto). He then said that when they played Dublin, the crowd was still baying for him during Bowie's set and Bowie said "Don't worry,. Morrissey will be back later".

Needless to say, my memory of the Dublin gig is a lot different

Slan libh,

So Levi's are called Levi's because the guy's name was Levi Strauss? Why didn't they call them strousers? - Fiona O'Kearney 6/5/2004
