What made you want to join a David Bowie
The Bowie part’s easy. Ever since I first heard Under Pressure (it was released when I was 10) his music has fascinated me. And there has never been a better run of albums from Hunky Dory to Let’s Dance - Beatles included. As for tribute bands - we are living in this odd window of time where tribute bands do not meet with universal approval, simply because the original artists are still active. This window is closing - after all, you don’t go to the Proms and expect to see Bach or Beethoven conducting….
What is your favourite David Bowie song?
Changes. Wonderful to play, such expressive chord sequences. Oh, and poetic lyrics - any Little Mix songs have words like “I watch the ripples change their size / But never leave the stream of warm impermanence”?
What is your previous experience?
Spent time growing up in Blackpool, so my weekend job was in WMCs - think Les Alanos in Phoenix Nights! Moved to South Croydon in 2004 and have gigged with several covers bands in the area since.
What other music do you enjoy?
Love the singer-songwriters. Too many to list them all, but If I had to choose three….. Billy Joel, James Taylor, Neil Finn, Kate Bush. Yes, I know I can’t count…..
