Sound Quality Rating
With John Wilson.
Tony Parsons, Miranda Sawyer and La Roux’s Elly Jackson discuss David Bowie’s music and influence, in the light of his new album The Next Day.
As the Victoria and Albert Museum prepares for a major David Bowie retrospective exhibition, John visits the Museum’s store-rooms to see sketches, costumes and instruments, drawn from Bowie’s personal archive.
John’s guides are designer Jonathan Barnbrook, who is involved in the exhibition and the new album artwork, and curators Victoria Broackes and Geoffrey Marsh.
John also draws on his own archive of interviews with David Bowie, including a recording from 2002 where Bowie discusses his influences, the experience of growing older, and how writing can sometimes be a traumatic experience.
