Longtime David Bowie pianist, and RR artist, Mike Garson offers his thoughts, remembrances and a photo after the news of David Bowie’s passing:
The Bowie Variations
Mike Garson in the notes for his RR recording The Bowie Variations: “When I met David, I sensed that he was an immense artist and a songwriter with a flair for great melodies and unique harmonies. The Ziggy Stardust tour changed the course of my life in many ways and began a working relationship and a special friendship that has spanned four decades.”
Having played the Bowie songbook in concert countless times, Garson always had the ambition to record his own original variations on these well-known themes.
