    1975? 1985? and 1973? Me thinks. George didn’t want to catch anything from the Thin White Duke. I read the news today, oh boy, they were the Young Americans…

    You don’t happen to have the polaroid of Bowie and Lennon in Japan (in 77?). Someone posted the pic a couple of years ago but I can’t seem to find the pic since. One of the few things lost from a computer crash.

    Klaatu meets free-base…and evolution starts unravelling. Is that Klaus Voorman? Ringo is a little late for the Ziggy look with the T.Rex perm.

    “George didn’t want to catch anything from the Thin White Duke.”

    What do you mean Markzapp? Didn’t he like him or his music..?

    David Bowie is cool! Whenever I see a picture of him, I immediately hear Let’s Dance play in my head XD (I blame the film Zoolander for that one though..)

    I meant that in that Glitter Era George was not really interested in meeting people that looked like Bowie. I read an interview with George talking about this. As for him liking his music, I don’t know. Yes I think Bowie is cool too but back then he was pretty scary looking to some.

    There’s that radio interview with George and John from Dec 74, George describing meeting Bowie:

    GEORGE: “David Bowie, these were my very words, and I hope he wasn’t offended by it because all I really meant was what I said, I pulled his hat up from over his eyes and said: hi man, how are you, nice to meet you, pulled his hat up and said, you know, do you mind if I have a look at you, to see what you are because I’ve only ever seen those dopey pictures of you. I mean, every picture I’ve ever seen of David Bowie, or Elton John, they just look stupid to me.”

    JOHN: “I thought they looked great”

    GEORGE: “Well I think he looks dopey… I want to see, you know, WHO the person is…”
