I saw him play at a festival in 2001. And when he got on the stage, I had actually expected a mix of old and new pieces.
Then and there Bowie actually started playing the "Low" album. I thought, "he can't do this", but it was fucking great. It was the best that I had ever seen of him.
I could not imagine that something like that could actually work. David Bowie showed me how it went and gave me courage to set the concept into action. So that is how the ideas for "Trilogy" came into being.
