Db In The Sun

Ciggy Stardust and The Sun (Machine)A two-page interview with David conducted by Dominic Mohan for The Sun was published on Saturday, under the headline: "IT'S CIGGY STARDUST"! The Sun, (Britain's biggest selling tabloid newspaper) recently voted David Bowie the most important artist of the century in a reader's poll.The interview made a big deal of Bowie's apparent rude health, which we all know he struggles to maintain via his intake of "40 fags a day, junk food and coffee by the gallon".

    Bowie Kickin In Nyc

    on November 19, 1999

    Last night David Bowie and crew (Mike Garson, Mark Plati, Page Hamilton, Sterling Campbell, Emm Gryner, Holly Palmer, and the birthday girl herself Gail Ann Dorsey) played a killer 17 song set Live from New York City.

    To celebrate Gail's birthday, David popped some champagne, poured for the band, and then passed to bottle (and cups) to the fans in the crowd for a special toast in Gail's honor.

    The entire show was recorded and will be re-broadcasted as both a radio show and Internet cybercast.

    Here is the set list:
    Life On Mars?
    Thursday's Child
    Something In The Air
    China Girl
    Can't Help
