"I don't think Bowie had the complete song ["All The Young Dudes"] written. He probably had most of it together. He changed a few lyrics around. Some ideas came from us as well. And seeing us playing, perhaps he tailored it a bit more to suit us. Knowing we had a deal with CBS, they were going to give it a big push anyhow. It was good for him as well; it was doing two jobs at once."
