A BowieNet exclusive - chat with Sandra Bernhard. On Monday, November 23rd at 10:30pm EST.

Join us from the Booth Theater for what will definitely be a night to remember.
Recent rumors about David Bowies involvement in an all-star concert version of the Beatles' Sgt Pepper can be put to rest.
David says "I read this story on a couple of sites but, as usual in these cases, nobody from this organization has made any contact with us. The event itself, with the symphony orchestra bit, does not sound like something I would be too interested in doing anyway. I think the organizers of these type events just throw artists' names around to drum up interest." -db
David says "Yes, this story is substantially true. Tony (Scott) called me earlier this year and asked me if I would like to take a crack at it. In fact he asked me some years ago to do the first series but I was too involved with the touring side of life, so he worked with Terence Stamp instead. I like the series and Tony is very cool to work with and if we can make the days work (can't miss my writing/recording time) I'll do it." -db
