Another gig where Bowie was loaded; he talks a lot of rubbish and his manner immediately betrays the fact that he is far from being sober: irregular,shaky and cor ny. “As you can see,my band came from very good families. It’s got a little … little mixed up,growing up,but I’d still like to introduce them. Former Yes … hahahaha … Tony Kaye. Tony Kaye on keyboards”. (Tony begins the intro to Changes.) “What he’s doing now,he’s trying to make everything easy by playing the intra for the next song very quietly behind me while I introduce everybody. He’s very professional,isn’t that professio nal? On guitar Carlos Alomar. Carlos co-wrote Fame with me and Lennon,and I’ve loved him ever since , hahahaha . On percussion Dennis Davis! As you can see he’s the star of the band. Hut when it comes to being a lady-killer,here’s someone who likes ladies,and does very well with them,I must tell – George Murray”. (he is hinting at the mitten he got earlier that day, when a girl showed herself more interested in George than in himself!) And,while Tony Kaye strays from the repertory, playing a couple of light tunes,Bowie goes on: “And really,I, I,I,I,I,I,I” (he trips over his words bu t then it gets a little better:) “I don’t know how to tell you this,but I’m going to introduce a Canadian! On lead guitar Stacy Heydon! Well,let me tell me about you – you’re the audience,and hello. My name’s David Bowie and this song is called Changp’s”. When the number is over Bowie asks “Do you speak English?” and the audience reply “Yes!”. “I was saying what a nice gig this was, haha,it’s a lovely gig” Bowie says and tells the audience about TVC15: “This is a love song I suppose. There is a romance,a love affair between a young lady and a television set,and it’s c a … hahaha … and it’s called TVC15“.
During Diamond Dogs Bowie calls “It’s only rock & roll but I like it!” and Rebel Rebel and Jean Genie follow as extra’s.
