I discovered a star, I got a better way, Ready set go...
If you are able, don't forget to tune in to Friday Night with Jonathan Ross on BBC1 at 10:35pm in the UK this evening. A whole bunch of BowieNetters helped create a great atmosphere at the taping of the show last night... perhaps not so difficult when it transpires that the number of people in the audience who weren't there to see David Bowie numbered just six!
David and the band recorded three songs, including the first single from Reality, New Killer Star, and also Modern Love and Never Get Old. Only the first two will be shown this evening, with the latter being saved for a later broadcast, hopefully, as it was such a strong performance. Never Get Old seems to get better every time the band play it.
Another thing that I'm sure won't make the cut this evening is David's quick stab at Blur's Song 2, and I would imagine that some of the banter between comedian Jack Dee and Mr Ross will not be broadcast either, seeing as how it fits neatly into the category we refer to as "choice language" over here.
"GAP jeans... My arse!" Bowie's back, by Blammo.
I've posted a picture of the back of David's jacket above so you can see that DETHKILLERS of BUSHWICK logo, and not BUSHKILLERS of DETHWICK, as David suggested. Of course, it could just be a gratuitous shot of David's bum, you can make up your own mind on that. BowieNetters can click on David's right cheek for another Blammo shot from last night that I've posted on the MBs.
Two other things to watch out for are Mike Garson's hat and the T-shirts of Four Poofs and a Piano, see below. I would have posted a picture of Mike's headwear too, but I thought I'd leave it as a surprise for those of you that weren't at the taping.

The other guests tonight are Julie Walters, ex So Solid Crew member Lisa Maffia, and the aforementioned Jack Dee, who you can watch live at the Hammersmith Apollo if you stay tuned to BBC1 after Friday Night with Jonathan Ross. After Jack Dee Live at The Apollo, you'll have ten minutes to go and make yourselves a cuppa before the screening of The Man Who Fell To Earth on BBC2 at 12:35.
