Lazarus in London

"After he died, it made much more sense..." 
(His last 15 minutes)

#LazarusMusical
A Trilogy from Paul Trynka : 1

"When I interviewed Enda, Michael C Hall, Henry Hey and Robert Fox, I was requested not to ask them when they “knew” David was ill. I didn’t resent the request – for one thing, there’s a crass element to that kind of question. When you know anyone who’s dying, at what point does it become reality, anyway?"

A Trilogy from Paul Trynka : 2

"It was in this time frame, of November 2014 (or December 2014, according to Fox) that he, Ivo and Walsh were made aware of a vital part of the context: “David told us that he wasn’t well.""

A Trilogy from Paul Trynka : 3

"No-one was certain whether David would make the official opening night."

Lazarus Original Cast Soundtrack Caruso Hall Hey

This show is innovative, thrilling, different and it spoke to me in a way I am having trouble to explain.
"Our musical was put on hold. We never revived it. "

Lodger 1979 Bowie

David Bowie's "Lodger" album, 1979

"The cover for "Lodger" was a collaboration between David, the photographer Duffy, and myself. 

I loved this solution to the problem of David being photographed falling. 

Shooting him from above, on a specially made table built to match the falling form. 

The table was designed to be completely obscured by David's body (You can see the table in the 1st photograph above). 

The wash hand basin was laid underneath the table on the floor.

August ...like Dorian gray, to exchange his soul for the illusion of youth in order to continue 

soullessly in the guise of another body without ever really confronting what he has lost.  FULL Bowie

The Next Day

 January 8, 2013

David Bowie's Where Are We Now? - first review

Neil McCormick delights in 'The most surprising, perfect and welcome comeback in rock history'.

The Surprise:  Quietus  "After a decade of artlessness Bowie is back."

                                    The new David Bowie albumThe Next Daydemonstrates and showcases the virtues of, and reasserts the radicalism of, seemingly traditional rock music.

"I have an  older  brother and  he was always a reader,  more than I was. 

He made me read       On The Road by Jack Kerouac.

It was the  most  important  thing that 

ever happened 

to me.

 

It was Terry 

 who really started everything  

for me."
