"I was working with Iggy writing the songs for his album…We went to Gstaad with our respective women and had a skiing holiday which went on for three months. It was fantastic, but in the evenings we were able to write. I took a four-track up there. We wrote in the evenings and skied in the day, and then went down to Montreaux and recorded Blah Blah Blah there. It worked out so well that I thought I’d record my album the same way."
David Bowie, Music & Sound Output, June 1987
