Marianne Faithfull duet's with David on a
version of Sonny & Cher?s `I Got You Babe?.
Something getting hard when you rock it up...
The BBC's Radio Two have a preview of the upcoming two-parter: 'The History Of The Marquee Club'. Scheduled for the 14th and the 21st of July, the rocumentary features contributions from many of those who played there, including David Bowie, Charlie Watts, John Mayall, Gary Brooker of Procol Harum, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd, Peter Frampton, Brian May of Queen, Bob Geldof, Manfred Mann, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, Marianne Faithfull, Rick and Francis from Status Quo and the club founders Harold Pendleton and Chris Barber.
Go here for a bit of David's fascinating contribution from where I have lifted the priceless snippet below:
?There were a lot of clubs to go to in the Soho scene in the 60?s but The Marquee was top of the list, because musicians did hang out there, pretending to talk business and picking up gigs - but picking up girls mostly. One of my keenest memories of The Marquee in the ?60?s was having a permanent erection because there were so many fantastic looking girls in there, it was all tourists, especially in summer, all flocking to London to get an R&B star.?
We will be posting a piece with, hopefully, some unpublished pictures nearer the broadcast of the first part of 'The History Of The Marquee Club'.
