"Unfortunately [I taught Iggy Pop to ski]. We thought, "Ooh, let's do healthy things." My son started me off skiing, because ever since he was five or six he's been an avid skier - most kids who grow up in Switzerland in the mountains are - and I felt a bit left out, so I started learning and I enjoyed it a lot and I knew Jim - Iggy - would too because Jim is incredibly athletic. So we used to go up in the mountains and I taught him to ski. He's a very good skier...He has an interesting style: lots of bravado and no fear."
David Bowie, Smash Hits, June 1987
