Flashback: Were you there when Bowie landed in Scotland?

WHEN David Bowie cancelled his T in the Park headline slot in 2004 due to ill health, no one expected it to be the end of his touring days. Renowned for his shows, the legend would never play a full concert again. While Scottish fans missed out that day at T in the Park, there were plenty of other Bowie gigs north of the border over the decades. Author Neil Cossar is writing a new book, David Bowie: I Was There, and is appealing to The Sunday Post readers for their memories of seeing David in concert. It might...

40 Years Ago: Iggy Pop, David Bowie Move to Europe and Make ‘The Idiot’

After David Bowie died in January 2016, his occasional collaborator Iggy Pop recalled the superstar musician’s impact on his career. Iggy didn’t undersell Bowie’s importance. “He resurrected me,” Pop told the New York Times. “He was more of a benefactor than a friend in a way most people think of friendship.

Davids last live performance at the liverocks concert in 2006. This is him sick after a heart attack the previous year.

AUDIO – David Bowie Live in Los Angeles 1974

The wonderful sounding line recording opens with about ten minutes of animal noises and sounds (played over concert PA) before breaking into the prelude of an orgasmic woman and creaming into the funky introduction of ‘1984‘. ‘1984‘ being a foundaional track off of Bowie’s new ‘Diamond Dogs’ LP is a fitting opener to the performance. The soundboard is crisp, if not lacking a bit of the high end, but for the most part all instruments are audible and punchy. At some points the recording seems a bit flat but only for the very discerning ear. The mix is present...
