J'ai regardé ce soir "Into the night" sur Arte, une comédie de John Landis sortie en 1985 avec Michelle Pfeiffer et Jeff Goldblum et aussi ... David Bowie Je crois bien que c'était la première fois de ma vie que j'entendais parler de ce film J'ai été intrigué par le programme TV qui parlait d'une impressionnante galerie de stars au générique et là... surprise !
Bowie y joue un tueur à gages présenté dans le film comme un anglais,sosie de ...David Bowie
Je ne me souviens même pas en avoir entendu parler sur Manofmusic. ça m'a fait bizarre.

JULY 13, 1985, WEMBLEY STADIUM 12:44 Bob Geldof gets back to being a pop star with The Boomtown Rats for three songs. Bob Geldof: “A few minutes before we went on, David Bowie massaged my back. That was pretty wild. Bowie massaging my back? Surely that should have been the other way round...
Once Philadelphia was confirmed, Bowie and Jagger wanted to duet, with Bowie singing in England and Jagger in the US. But how would they sing together, given the time delay in getting satellite pictures from one continent to another? “We couldn’t work out how bad the time lapse would be,” chuckles Goldsmith. “Eventually, we decided one of them would have to go up in a space rocket. We called NASA. To my amazement they took us seriously, so we started having an earnest discussion about how Jagger could sing in outer space.”
7:22 David Bowie plays four songs before showing a famine video soundtracked by The Cars’ Drive. Harvey Goldsmith: “Three weeks before the show, David and I went through about 50 news clips from Africa, going ‘Can we do something with this one?’ It was the music that initially pricked us up for The Cars. David said ‘I’ll drop a song, but you have to put that on.’” Thomas Dolby: “Bowie only decided his setlist that morning. We’d rehearsed those four songs, but only individually, not together. I fl ew in the helicopter with him, and that was the only time he was angry, as he hated flying. He was chainsmoking, even though the pilot was telling him to stop, and muttering ‘Are we nearly there?’ the whole journey. We got escorted by police motorcyclists to the stadium, and Bowie loved that! The show went as well as it could, and Bowie was really pleased. I sat behind him in the VIP enclosure after, and I heard him ask Princess Diana if she’d come on stage for the fi nale. She said ‘I might be able to sing a bit of God Save The Queen, but that’s as far as my vocal talents go, I’m afraid.’”

This Kentucky Distillery Is Blasting David Bowie Songs to Flavor Its Brandy

When owner Joe Heron pushes the door open into the underground cellar, I can feel their effects—the pulse, pulse, pulse in the air, consistently produced by the bassline. Music plays 24/7; it’s a rotating playlist curated and planned eclectically. Some days it’s based on musicians’ birthdays, while on others the playlist is picked based on a new market that the brand has broken into. “Did you know there is such a thing as Houston hip hop?” Heron asks me, referencing their recent venture into Texas.
They celebrate holidays: On July 4, Springsteen, Hendrix, Kravitz, and Bowie rounded out a medley of independence-themed songs queued to get the aging all-American spirits in a patriotic mood. And on other days it’s just based on the distillers’ tastes—anything from My Morning Jacket to death metal to jazz...

David Bowie album cover to be developed

An abandoned 205 acre site that was previously home to Cane Hill psychiatric hospital and appeared on the front cover of a David Bowie album is set to be transformed into nearly 700 new homes in Croydon.
The former hospital opened in 1882 and treated many patients including Charlie Chaplin’s mother. In the 1970s it famously appeared on David Bowie’s ‘The Man Who Sold the World’ album. The site had been abandoned since 1991, when the hospital closed, with large parts of it destroyed by a fire in 2010.
The new development, Cane Hill Park, will put the old hospital site and the 173 acres of agricultural land around it to productive use, by providing hundreds of new homes and creating a new urban centre for Croydon.
Construction of the first homes on the Cane Hill site will begin in September, and the first new residents of Cane Hill will move in to their homes in spring 2016...
David Bowie's contribution to rock & roll has been wit and sophistication. He's smart, he's a true musician and he can really sing. He's got such a big range: I like the Ziggy Stardust voice, but he's got a lot of different voices. He's got his crooner voice, when he wants to. And he has a melodic sense that's just well above anyone else in rock & roll. Most people could not sing some of his melodies. He can really go for a high note. Take "Satellite of Love," on my Transformer album. There's a part at the very end where his voice goes all the way up. It's fabulous. There had been androgyny in rock from Little Richard on up, but David put his own patina on it, to say the least. He bethought hard about that Ziggy character; he'd been studying mime, and he didn't do it just for laughs. He was very aware of stagecraft. He made an entire show out of that character — and then he left it behind. How smart can you get? Can you imagine if he had to keep doing Ziggy? I mean, if you listened to what critics and audiences say, you'd be playing four songs over and over again. David set himself up to do other characters, like the Thin White Duke. And his take on American soul music, on albums like Young Americans, was incredibly good; the original material he wrote was great. I can't pick a favorite Bowie record. It always depends on my mood — any of the dance records; Ziggy Stardust; I always liked "The Bewlay Brothers," that track on Hunky Dory. And the albums he did with Brian Eno, like Low and "Heroes," are just phenomenal. He's always changing, so you never get tired of what he's doing. And I mean all the way up to his later records: "The Loneliest Guy" on his album Reality is a great song. Yet another one. David and I are still friends after all these years, amazingly enough. We go to the occasional art show and museum together, and I always like working with him. I really love what David does. I remember seeing him play in New York on the Reality tour a few years back, and it was one of the greatest rock & roll shows I have ever seen. At least as far as white people go. Seriously.
