The origins of "Fame," again... [re: Adam]  

"...[Carlos Alomar] said, 'Oh, I know that old thing [Footstompin'].' And he said, 'Listen, I've got this great riff that we could use for it.' It was something that he'd written for James Brown, though Brown never used it...

[In 1975] Lennon said, 'You know, let's do something.' I said, 'Yeah, what can we do?' And I said, 'Carlos, that riff you've got!'

We used it for Fame but it came from our version of Footstompin'. Fame was built around a recycled riff.

I guess we could have done more together, John and I, but we ended up just having a laugh most of the time. He was terrific fun."

David Bowie, Washington Post, 9 June 2002
