There's a brand new talk
Monday 4th November sees the premiere of a new, hour long TV programme about David. 'VH1 Reveals: David Bowie' airs at 8.00PM on VH1 in the UK. There is a lovely, long teaser about the content of this in-depth interview showing over at VH1's UK website. You need to click on 'Channel Highlights' and then on the title of the show to read it. Here are one or two extracts:-
David reveals how becoming a father again recently has affected his songwriting. He goes on to explain how he worries about what kind of environment and society she is going to grow up in. However it seems his biggest concern is keeping his daughter away from his old Ziggy wardrobe and costumes!
Throughout the interview we learn of David's high and low points in his career. Which have included getting to know the likes of Bob Dylan, Pete Townshend and John Lennon and even working on a Marlene Dietrich film. He admits John Lennon referred to his style and approach to music as "rock'n'roll with lipstick"!
The programme airs again on Tuesday 5th November at 11.00PM, Wednesday 6th at 8.00PM and Friday 8th at 8.00PM.
