Slims, San Francisco,1991
Bowie! The name brings up many images. Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke, Collaborator with Iggy. When the opportunity to photograph him came up, I wasn't sure which character I would deal with. Much to my surprise I worked with a humble, quiet, sincere man. During dinner at the Cypress Club in S.F., upon hearing that I was from Cleveland, he spent the next hour, or so, talking about how hard the music business is, how Tin Machine was struggling, how Cleveland helped launch his Ziggy Album, completely blowing off all the Big Shots in the room. It was refreshing to see someone of his stature retain his sense of humour and humility. When the shoot was finished,he said since I worked hard all afternoon & night that he and I should have a shot together. A tip of the Hatlo Hat to one of the great individuals in the music business.
