"So David, advise me about Man Love."
JR gets close to David Bowie last night.
Waiting for the gift of sound and vision...
As I'm sure you all know by now, last night was the taping of "Friday Night with Ross and Bowie" which is due for broadcast a week from today (Friday July 5th) on BBC1, at 10:35pm. I won't give too much away before the broadcast, so those of you who weren't at yesterday's taping can enjoy the surprises too.
I can tell you that David and the band performed wonderful versions of 'Fashion', 'Slip Away', 'Be My Wife', 'Everyone Says Hi' and the intro to 'Fame' which was aborted in favour of a cracking rendition of 'Ziggy Stardust'.
A few of the highlights of the conversation between a nervous Jonathan Ross and a very relaxed and smiling David Bowie (in no particular order and nowhere near complete) were: Japanese sex toys for the ear, the cut-up technique, a stylophone duet, man love, Glam Rock clothing, the killing of Ziggy, birds and bees chat with Duncan, a brilliant rendition of Lexi-speak, the parallels between 'Low' and 'Heathen', and much, much more.
Can't wait to see the final broadcast to see how they've managed to edit this very entertaining craziness down to a TV programme!
