It had been years since anyone had heard from David Bowie, the rock icon who seemed happier to fade away rather than burn out. But suddenly, in January, came a new single with his first album in a decade to follow. Stuart Clark reflects on the Thin White Duke’s remarkable career, and then talks to his right-hand man, Dubliner GERRY LEONARD, about 2013’s most-anticipated return.
Rock ‘n’ roll was in a pretty dreary old state at 7.25pm on Thursday July 6, 1972 when upwards of 20 million viewers got to see David Bowie and The Spiders From Mars belt out ‘Starman’ on Top Of The Pops.
Gerry Leonard has the inside story on the making of The Next Day
The Next Day is released on March 11 on Columbia records.
