David Bowie 80s Career Revisited
Signing for a reported $17 million, the piece looks at how Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ – co-produced by Chic’s Nile Rogers and recorded in just 17 days – was EMI’s fastest-selling album since The Beatles’ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club’, bringing Bowie even more popularity,” according to NME.
“Rogers also spoke to Uncut for the feature. ‘Diehard Bowie fans act like those records of the ’70’s – Ziggy Stardust, Pin Ups and the others – were these massive records, but they weren’t,’ he said,” according to the report.
While NME has a breakdown of the feature, the full version is available by finding the UNCUT magazine on the local stands. According to the report, there is even more commentary from former bandmates like Carlos Alomar who shared stories from their time working together.
It has been over two years since Bowie passed away but his impact is long-lasting. He is continuing to inspire folks throughout the industry and it is evident that there is still much more to learn about him, from these recent publications.
