You see, I saw those people like Bowie and Bolan and there was hardly hysteria. And never stage invasions. I think hysteria eventually came to people like Bowie but initially it wasn't there.
The Last Of The Famous International Playboys are Bowie, Bolan, Devoto and me.
Do you see similarities between yourself and Bowie?
"What, the living Bowie or the present dead one? The living Bowie, there are some, yes. Yes, I do see similarities."
