Bowie Interview

    David Bowie Acts His Age: The ATN Interview

    Gil Kaufman met up with David Bowie in New York recently to talk about Bowie's new album, 'hours ...', the shocking music video for the first single, "Thursday's Child," and acting!

    Here is an excerpt:

    Bowie: The next [musical project] will very definitely be with Tony Visconti, which is what we've been talking about for a year now. But I had to get this one done. I think Tony and I are very excited because we don't know what it's gonna be like.

    I will put it back into the experimental mode again, I think. But who knows?

Uk Bowie Reviews

on October 01, 1999
    Wonderful 'hours...' reviews in the UKs The Daily Mirror (half page and a track-by-track breakdown) and The Orange County Register and we quote:

    'Bowie continues to work at the height of his powers...scouring the emotional depths of his generation's current state in ways his contempories rarely do...and it's simply amazing how he still impresses.'

    Oh yes!!

Review In People

on September 30, 1999

Here is a review of "Hours..." from the October 11th People Magazine.

Hours?
David Bowie (Virgin)


During his 52 years, Bowie has been known to take a misstep or two. He once starred in a mime troupe, and his 1987 Glass Spiders tour was a tangled mess. So it seems highly probable, then, that this techno-tinged album would turn out to be another sad attempt by an aging rocker to be trendy.

Surprise: Rather than dabbling in the esoteric of pop's outer electronic edge, Bowie surfs it with aplomb.
