“Now you’ve met The London Boys, things seem good again” & “New York’s A Go-Go” As the David Bowie Estate launches Bowie 75, a year-long celebration marking David Bowie’s 75th birthday, with the openings of two curated experiential pop-up shops – one at the site of the earliest confirmed Ziggy Stardust sighting, and one in the adopted hometown where Bowie’s final album ★ (pronounced “Blackstar”) was created.
Mention Moby and I can guarantee that you will instantly have running through your head his song, ‘Natural Blues’, from his 1999 album, ‘Play’. Back then the track featured a sample vocal from folk singer, Vera Hall, singing ‘Trouble So Hard’, which Moby found on a boxed set of folk music, collected by field recorder, Alan Lomax.
Culture Club frontman Boy George, Pretty Reckless bandleader Taylor Momsen, Award-winning comedian and After Life star Ricky Gervais, and Ground Control supergroup with Dave Navarro(Jane’s Addiction), Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), and Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) and six-time Ivor Novello Award winner Gary Barlow (Take That) will take the virtual stage for “A Bowie Celebration: Just For One Day!”, the global streaming concert bringing together a dazzling array of artists who worked with David Bowie or who were inspired and influenced by his work — for a celebration of what would have been his 74th birthday and the weekend of the fifth anniversary of his passing. Presented by Mike Garson, David Bowie’s longest-standing band member, the concert will stream on January 8 beginning at 6pm PT.
