Q magazine have a feature this month called MAD PROPS.
They trawl through a long list of artists and their props, from Alice Cooper to Slipknot. First to be mentioned in the article is our hero. David Bowie : The telephone
What was it for: On his Glass Spider tour, Bowie would be lowered from atop his spider in a chair while giving it some "0898". A Trimphone version also appeared on the '74 Diamond Dogs tour: Bowie would clamber into a giant mechanical hand which extended out over the audience while he sung Space Oddity.
Greatest Moment: When the mechanical hand broke. "David had to crawl back down the pole," said producer Tony Visconti. "The fans were trying to grab his bottom."
The caption on the photo says : " Hello, is that the hairdresser's? I want to complain about a defective mullet."....lol
How about a stage full of 'toys' for the next tour?
