Sound Quality Rating
Meet a man who was there at the birth of Ziggy Stardust, legendary record producer Ken Scott, who joins Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy on Monday 16th May at 7:00pm BST at The British Library to discuss the making of the album that shot Bowie into inter-galactic fame.
The sound system for the evening will include the Bowers & Wilkins 800D3 speakers and a Rotel Michi X5 integrated amplifier.
David Bowie was a musical and cultural phenomenon whose significance only seems to increase with every passing year. He rocketed to stardom 50 years ago, in the summer of 1972, with the release of the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars. His appearance on Top of the Pops a month later, dressed as an alien rock star and performing ‘Starman’, was an event that changed many lives.
Ken not only produced Bowie’s The Rise and Fall… but also the preceding Hunky Dory and the following Aladdin Sane. Furthermore he was one of the five main engineers for the Beatles, engineered for Elton John, and produced Mahavishnu Orchestra, Billy Cobham, Supertramp and Missing Persons.
Ken’s conversation with Colleen will be followed by playback of the album on a world class hi-fi system and the chance to put your questions to one of the most important producers in rock history.
