DISCUSSION WITH GERRY LEONARD, BOWIE'S GUITARIST
LONDON: The Hospital Club
FRI 7TH FEB, 2014 1pm to 2:15pm
1pm to 2:15pm
Join curator and musician Tom Wilcox for a moment of harmonic rock n roll anecdotes as he interviews David Bowie's renowned guitarist, Gerry Leonard.
Gerry Leonard is a Dublin born guitar player, songwriter and producer now based in New York city. As part of the New York scene, Gerry’s distinctive and innovative ambient style has led to his working with many great artists over the years, including David Bowie, Roger Waters, Roger Glover and Suzanne Vega - with whom he is playing at the Barbican on the evening of Friday 7 February.
A highlight was becoming music director / guitar player for David Bowie on his last year long “Reality” world tour and DVD (2003/2004). Apart from Bowie’s previous two records, “Heathen” and “Reality” and the subsequent tours, Gerry also features on David's surprise comeback album “The Next Day” of last year, and has two co-writes with David on the record: “Boss of Me” and “I’ll Take You There”.
Gerry will be discussing his career with Tom, including the artistic processes behind the secret making of "The Next Day" and life on the road and in the studio with David Bowie and other great artists.
