You can hear it between heroes as he gets louder out of my purse and that's the technique they did here but you mentioned just now the pits orchestra and down. He says that he spoke to some of the older guys in sort remember. This was nineteen eighty-one so there were people here who is being active during this eighth. Nineteen thirty nineteen forties. Yeah even nineteen twenties and there were some musicians who had been playing on the original a first performance of the threepenny opera so there was a wonderful connection here. Amazing is amazing dominic. Mo- dan says maldini says. I don't know who fix the orchestra but the accordion player. Who featured very prominently was an old guy and i asked him if he remembered the old days thirties and he said oh yeah i was in the first performance of the threepenny opera so whoever arranged had been told bowie was coming and that he wants that real proper german kurt vile sound so they rounded up all the old guys twelve of them and tony visconti made it sound like there was fifty of them because he could get that sound on those drill it so in terms of authenticity. Although bowie wasn't exactly flush with money at this point he financed these sessions and he clearly was. They were coming from the heart weren't they. This was a real passion. Say so many things come together here. Somebody passions and his loves are all this project. Yeah yeah i've really People to go. I think he's got a has a reputation for being somehow as difficult thing. It's difficult to told just lovely songs.

There's so there's the episode balls which is the longest piece on it which is which is you know. Just doesn't say beautifully that the abandoned a wonderful and there's a couple of slightly more throwaway numbers they the duchy song into biologists the adventures which are great. But i think the two real staw exhibits This the drums goal.

"It's just outside, Iowa staffing! It's called the magic bar actually. Far You. Have you WANNA? Look it up. I. Wonder He might have. You might even have like a facebook page. Betty does actually so I was out there on tour and the guy who booked a GIG. You told me the story and they took me out there. So I went out, and they were actually doing the first day of recording, and they were doing version of heroes. You know to to owner David and It was great. It was great to see the guy who had so much love and respect for the history of it. You know and he's trying to do right by and was I guess like three or four years ago now so so i? Don't know I haven't followed up with him I haven't seen him since that night, but it felt like. Like! It was good chance you know again. It was in the hands of somebody who really wanted to do right by and continue the legacy in his own life. Thank you for telling me that that is just so love. Lay fight that just warms my heart. A piece of the magic shop still lives on. Someone cared enough to give it as you say the respect of keeping it service, keeping it operational less so cool. Love that story. Thank you is really nice to hear a story like that. Where there is such a wonderful ending to go back to the beginning. There's this wonderful story about how Bowie came into a club in Manhattan to see one night. Maria Schneider. I've been in her group. Gosh maybe fifteen years or something and. She called me one day and said that somebody from Bowie's team had reached out to her that that he was interested in collaborating with her, and she was getting ready to make her her own record. called the Thompson fields and Maria. Somebody who you know goes in deep, but she's doing her own project. I mean it's a total of experience on her end. You know just for months or a year or something so I think essentially the at the beginning kind of debating whether or not to take on this thing David, because because she would also, she never does anything without being fully committed to it and so we ran vimy, and and I remember essentially saying. Hey, you ought to do this. Good idea and also knowing that her music was in really good shape for the record. We did playing and and whatnot, so yes, so then I guess we talked again. She been in contact with David and was starting to kind of put the put the pieces together, and the had started meeting and I think I think he was going to her apartments and sitting at her piano, which is in the living room, and they're working on on Su so you know they didn't you call me one point in discussing? I recommended March Alesana. Thought would be great for this and I. Don't think our normal drummer kearns pen could make. It didn't use talking with me about different ideas around it, and then another day she called, and said Hey. you know David was describing rhythmic underpinning what he was hearing on sue and I thought of you and I and I played a record of yours, and it was a record call casting for gravity and I told him he should do something with you and your hand. You know so. Thank you. I was I was pretty surprised. And obviously you know it was really mean meaningful that she would she would do that. You know and some more time went by, and she called again said that she recommended again David and that he was interested in. He had told her that he saw that. We were playing at the fifty five bar. Which is this club and so you know, she said okay. We're GONNA. Come down and check you out, so she told. told you advance kind of. She told me in advance and new the component. He ended up pressure. Get component of leaving out his at some of these calls were around setting up the workshops for her for the SUV version that I'm a part of because I'm Marie his bandage shoes? You know she wanted to put together. Just a few people from the band myself Mark John Anderson on Bass rank, trombone, and to start work. Shopping this piece so. That was about a week after this game at the fifty five bar. I know that they're coming. That happens to be like the last rehearsal before gig before. We're going to record some music a mind so all the stuff going on. I think I told. Mark about it, because he knew because he was going to be on the on the thing with Maria didn't tell the other guys they came. The fifty five bars is very very small place in the West village that I love and love and love played so much music there I've learned so much there and they were there and I. Didn't you know I think? I saw him out of the corner of my eye, but it's as you can imagine it's. It's something you don't want to focus on. You just want to focus on the music and being president being in the moments, not thinking about what could happen or this or that because it just you know just didn't feel like it would serve me well so so I just tried to stay in the moment, and then you know we finished the sad and people came up and they were gone, so I didn't even I didn't meet him or anything and And it wasn't until a week later when it went to the first workshop for Su-. Why met David and that was David Tony Visconti. and Um Coco Schwab. Assistant was there and Maria is mentioned. Mark, Jay and Ryan Myself. What did you know of? Bowie beforehand you kind of familiar with his music to see you knew where he's where he was in the Pantheon of rock and roll, and so on. How much of a big deal was this for you? I mean I would say I had a headed general knowledge of his music I mean. the record..

from the stands the empty stands and we looked down and saw a limousine wow there's a reason as in so we we went down and we snuck into the limousine we hung out in the backseat which is a thrill for it you know if you or a kiss fan if Jean Simmons limousine you'd be thrilled saying hang and we was looking around and we open them yes raising their cigarette **** in there so that's a pretty good soon there at Boeing cigarette **** yeah and he was with me Bianca Jagger and she also smoked and there was a Bianca Jagger cigarette but because you could tell because of lipstick on it always smoke Marlboros I don't know what Jagger smoked I think it was Carlton okay Sandra my home I can't go ahead I'm sorry good girl woman so he got those cigarette **** we're all excited an hour and we talked about it on the radio a little bit and then the show is getting closer to the show starting in everyone's milling around backstage excitement everyone's hoping to get to me David Bowie all these record people there are always DJs are there but we were more important station and so we got kind of special treatment and the record guy told my boss said of his he says well we were standing there in the dark and in the rain come with me now so we ran through you know through the people to the what turned out to be Bowie's trailer in the winter trailer yeah yeah we went to his make up trailer if you well his his you know where you hang out and I wouldn't really know is going to happen no one said you're going to meet him now it is said follow me so we followed in inside the trailer lights were very bright it was warm and dry member there were two people as David Bowie in his bright blond hair right there in the little trailer Hey is assistant cocoa Schwab whose actually loved him had loved was in love with him but it was his you know kept the masses away from Ms personal assistant yeah and they're about more maybe six seven people the quake when and I got to meet him and it was a thrill some to me and I was the first time and he was you know he's just so shiny bright of a person in that shiny break trailer we'll get a picture that picture still exists you've kneels down in front of us we get a picture and we told him Hey we played everyone is sounds on the radio which by the way is unheard of no one ever know and did that or does that that was I'm pretty unprecedented in did you say you play them like one after another yes we even played if there are three versions like heroes German English and French we played all three versions in a row insane right so it's only played everything and we said we we even played here in our early single Liza Jane these at all you got that well I guess you got it all the and then it was time he had to go because it's time to go on stage it was raining and he didn't have an umbrella so I gave him my boss is I had my bosses umbrella and I just say you need a number here take this so he took it means that that was cool you know this is all fanboys stuff yeah and then we saw the show which is great lot of people there are a lot of people listening hours saw the show then we we get back to the station we told I think it was it was Carter was it DJ I think all right and I'm sorry I don't know and seem I could only it's probably a Raz on the radio was there was Raz I was weak Raz who is cool I wonder whatever happened Araz on the radio we got there and we turned the studio to tell a story about seeing David Bowie and everything I was with my boss Oedipus and maybe Alberto too yeah and we had a cigarette **** and we decided we would have a ceremony smoke one of the on the air in tribute to a you know just so is pretty cool I mean if you have us if you're is super fast somebody tax the smoke the second same cigarette that they smoke yeah see pretty big deal yeah and then and then we we said on the radio that we're doing this so you can actually get some of David Bowie's molecules into our bodies because there was there would be some of the molecules from him at because it's what the cigarette you know you haven't had it in his mouth he had in his lips yeah so we think is that we would have some of his molecules and maybe get just a little bit of his magic and that that was the story but it was weird when I have that tape I listen to it and it sounds like we were so unprofessional we were like a little giddy little kids yeah like eight years old how may go yeah we're gonna spoken my typical I think there's anybody in this situation how they would react well if you're super fan yeah you know yeah this rush fans is like Geddy Lee you know where you smoke getting these cigarettes I mean this is I guess if if you've never been a super fan of anybody then you wouldn't get it but we were fans yeah I know I I I get it I if I yeah I agree if if you have been a fan you would get it so later on Oedipus Oedipus leaves charmed life he travels around a lot and he was on a train one time with Boeing he sat in the training of the church in Japan on a bullet train you get to hang around David Bowie well I know so they became pals kind of cool there it is any other questions for the article I can't think right now I basically wanted your permission and just to at least let let you know I would check with you know what this is a lot for me to work with right now and then I may be in touch with you again a problem I probably will be okay yeah you can email the things you want okay here's the thing I I was telling Mario yeah I told him that I did email I guess I sent you an email tonight but it was sent back to me and it says something about it was from an outside source not within the building it was sent back to her yeah yeah senator Bradley J. at I heart media dot yeah yes because it will it will with friends there it actually went there and then they sent it backs you know all this computer business something about it as the source was out of the building that's just that's that's alright because any email I do get yeah has that on it even if I get emails from people I know if it's not from in the building it says from outside sources just so it's to alert us I guess and maybe you'll be able to open it maybe I did you okay then maybe you did because it does say something about open with caution at the very bottom of it but I thought well why they telling me that back to you that's what I don't understand all right well okay be interesting to see if you you know we'll touch base and another time in and if you want you can let me know if you got it okay now but I'll be in touch somehow okay yeah all right thank you so much I always I as always I love you so thank you right it is so we have Greg in Ohio a great how long do you need because I only have two minutes now or I can wait till late in the day it'll it'll be quick a friend of mine cheap you know the her and I was just talking last night hope Spencer who much more expensive it is to eat healthy you know organic food free range and all that it's it's it's you know it's a lot more expensive and leasing eat that way anyone who would you want her I want to point out holes because I'd like to respond by the way you don't necessarily need to eat organically to eat healthy I'm just talking about no not spree packaged foods not prepared foods that have lots of salt and fat you can buy a bag of Pinto beans super cheap in making yourself a bag of rice and rice and beans and then rice and beans broccoli rice and beans and peppers you can make this stuff at home and I would wager that you could do it not more expensively if you buy a bag of dried beans a big bag of rice other things like that it doesn't have to be I mean again it's great if you can do it but at least not organic healthy food is better than total total junk death vote death food that's right I probably so what I'll do we'll finish up well with us we will address this with great in Ohio and then we'll talk to read in Boston want to talk
