"He didn't really have any giant hits after that from 84. And you know what? The funny thing is is if you actually look at like in terms of like Grammy Awards and his, you know, him charting, you know, his song is getting on the charts. He did not have a ton that ended up on the charts. Like, if you look at the highest grossing, most popular, you know, David Bowie songs. His remake of dancing in the streets with Mick jag, which is a horrible. Horrible song. I like under pressure better than that one. Yeah. It's like number four in terms of the success that he had. You know, David Bowie was definitely he was an album oriented kind of guy. Yeah. Yeah. All right, so I said, what did I say, diamond dogs? What do you got? Did I pick so I have to go with space oddity. You know, they go wrong. Well, you know what? It was the first, right? So space oddity was my introduction to David Bowie. My parents used to play it. Right. You know, so it was one of those, you know, classic songs. Like, if you go back into the early 70s, you had a lot of singer songwriters out there that were actually writing songs that were stories. Yeah. You know, like Jim Croce was a story guy and I know one of your favorite favorite favorite people to Harry Chapin with cats in the cradle and that's like Harry cheap and I hate that song. Yeah. And I'm not saying that space oddity is on par with Jim Croce or Harry Chapin. But it had that kind of theme that was kind of like a story that was you could follow. And there was a lot of drama and there was a lot of mystery into it, especially for a little kid listening to it, you know, can you hear me major Tom? Like, you weren't really sure what happened to him. Not until scary monsters came out. But everyone ashes through ashes, right? Which is great, great song. Yeah, we know major Tom's junkie. That's when he finally came out and said it, but the thing about space oddity is this. It's very few songs very few performers can pull this off where they actually put you right in the moment of the song. You can visualize what's going on when that song is playing. It's no like Bruce Springsteen lyrics that none of them make any fucking sense on their own, but they sound good together. They started, he put you in there..

Remembering Bowie, Mercury, and Pressure

"You want to feel old guys, January 10th. That was the 5th anniversary of David Bowie's death. He would have been 75 right now. I don't know why his age makes a big difference. I mean, you know, Paul McCartney is still running strong. He is who he is and he's fine, but it's just, you know, you don't think a guy's like Bowie being 75, and also the great patron poll, lenahan reminded me that today, Freddie Mercury died, well, not today, but Freddie Mercury died 30 years ago. In November, 30 years ago, I don't know if you care for those two artists, those two rockstars, but if you don't, there's something wrong with you, but go up on YouTube and watch the version of the two of them singing the song pressure. Now they never sang it together. There's YouTube versions that look like they're together, but they're analytic together. And they never sign up together on stage. They corroded in one night, but never performed it together. That is shot in 1985 at some I think it was for me. One big ass concert, but they didn't do it. I bet they wish they had. But those lyrics, what are we 40 years removed from those guys writing that song? Those lyrics, pressure pushing down on me, pushing down on you, no man asked for. Under pressure that burns a building down, splits a family into puts people on the streets,

"Do that. People don't care because they get drunk enough they're like lavas the way the robber record that guitar part is one of my favorite studio production stories by the way just in just in case. There's anyone who doesn't know this. I expect most people who have made it as far as episode. Do know this already but just in case it's anyone who doesn't know this egos are thing that exist but robert trip gets pissed every time someone mistakenly says he used ebo on this track or any track. He never use an ibo. What he did was figuring how to manipulate his guitars. Natural tendency to feedback in order to create a unique sustain. So this guitar. Part is a product of him figuring out two spots in the studio where. I'm standing here with my guitar. It's gonna make this note feeding back. And if i'm standing here with my guitar it's gonna make this note but he wants the note to change suddenly as if he's actually changing e on the string so what he did is jumped back and forth like when you hear that guitar note. Change in heroes. It's because robert has jumped from one spot in relation to his guitar amp like physically over to another spot. Jumping like seven feet away. That's fucking rad. That is a creative musical genius. The david bowie had zero percent involvement in this activity and then just to be safe. They had him record it twice. they're going to do it again just so in whatever one we like more will use it and they ended up stacking. Both that's how that guitar sounds that way. So it's really hilarious to me to imagine a karaoke version the way that this all culminates is in the fact that all of this work dedication and interesting recording styles goes into a song so that it can be like completely obliterated in sung every night around the world in some shitty kariuki bar just for one day. Oh my god which quick side note. When i first visited karaoke. No i should say. When i visited nashville. One time before. I moved here i went to a bar downtown. That doesn't exist anymore. It seems i'm not from nashville. And honestly i don't really think i ever went to a karaoke bar until i moved here. Character wasn't very popular around from one of the things that blew my mind. How fucking serious people. Take karaoke in nashville. It is as if they are trying to get discovered and their way of getting discovered would be to do karaoke the stage to the point where there were people playing fake instruments unstaged like they had prop guitars that somebody wanted to play a song. You could get up on stage play. This obviously unplugged in our along with the person singing. It was one of the most insane experiences to experience for the first time. I remember thinking like oh my god. These people are really trying. This is their moment. Dude if we ever go onto or if your favorite band socks over live shows like the opening thing is you know like everything has to have like an opening. Act the opening thing is you walker kerry yoki and everyone that comes to the show got a new some songs and it's going to be the opening our everyone's getting their ears and digging their seats karaoke guys be so good he'll carry.

"Maybe i am alone. But it's i guess it's fucked up when artists which is a lot of them do endeavoured. David bowie definitely did just kind of chase trends and put themselves out. There is being weird and look out creative. I am but it's really not. It's just a trend for the moment. And i'm gonna move on and i'm gonna shit talk or blast all the things i used to be or the way i used to be or whatever but that meant something that people you can tell how person all david bowie fans make their phantom of him. If for no other reason have you. Is there any other artists that has this. Many horrific covers of their songs done by other artists. Do just a song heroes. If the only thing that david bowie did was put the song heroes into the world and it became the level of song that it is still fuck david bowie just for that alone. There are so many trash unnecessary covers of this song. How many years has depeche mode been ending every concert with their cover of heroes even wanna know. Have you ever heard peter. Gabriel do this song walk. Eighties terrible really. So bad. nothing worse. People take already bad song. The doesn't mean what it means and they put their own twist on it. Which makes it even worse. I was kidding and you. We fucked up. We.

"We are the goon squad and we're coming to town beep beep so and then the thing is like fucking obviously he's working with stellar musicians on a lot of these albums like robert trip is seriously easily one of the five best guitar players of all time. Yeah he's got robert trip on these songs. But it's this. I mean it's the same situation as always happens like once you lead david bowie reform poetry over it or whatever the funky trinity which by the way he definitely lifted almost all of this approach from iggy pop who very famously improvise most of the lyrics in most of his songs you but at least he was like what he did. He meant it right. Yes that's the thing that you could try. Just be david bowie. The influence that david bowie iggy pop was to make iggy pop less like iggy pop stooges concerts could only lasts for thirty minutes. Because iggy pop will go out on stage in physically exhausted himself and probably lose his voice just screaming and now was the stooges. That's what they were there to do. So then when david bowie starts working with iggy pop he's like i got to calm down. Drop your voice real low like the sister. Midnight range The nightclubbing range slow. This all down. I mean i love those albums. Because iggy pop is fucking rad. But david bowie literally just made iggy pop less iggy pop. Yeah in order for david bowie to then take that percentage of iggy pop for himself. This is going to be a very controversial episode of this podcast. And one of the reasons why it's going to bother people so much is first of all like they know him as the goblin king from wavering. So they think he's awesome ever since they were little kids. But the whole thing with david bowie for most of his career goes back to like that fake bisexuality thing. People viewed him as an outsider. Space aliens stranger in a strange land. Robert heinlein all all these like ideas debut him as an outsider so people who like outsiders themselves fuel understood or appreciate or accepted by david bowie. So one of his biggest songs on ziggy stardust. You're not alone go back to nineteen seventy-two tour this in whatever arena is closest to all these people who live in shitty little towns in the middle of nowhere where everyone considers them a freak because there are a little bit different Put this guy on stage with this. I'm a- space alien back story and have him screen you're not alone at arenas full of people how does that not work How does that not sell in record breaking numbers. Of course it works but like the internet exists now in furry know that they're not alone. Everyone knows that they're not alone. So there's no use for this. The world has no use for david bowie anymore. I guess it really. You know people probably guess gravitated toward it but if you really think about it how that got dragged out like if you attached yourself david bowie at some point in your life because you're thinking like oh he really is like you know making how who i am more acceptable. How disappointing would it be. As david bowie moves onto the next thing. That's popular in changes entire image because trends evolve and immediately storage shit talking the previous thing doing which he did every time every time he switched personas identity genres..

"How adolf hitler was such a fucking crazy narcissist and everyone loved them or whatever they believed in their head. Oh i mean. I don't wanna be hitler. Because he did fuck shit put. Maybe i wanna be hitler to i. Wanna be hitler without killing people. If you ever find yourself saying the phrase. It's not like i support nazis. But if you guys don't do whatever you're thinking is wrong okay. It's aiden correct. We don't have to argue over where the line is nazis. These are on the other side of the line. Okay wherever you wanna put the line. Nazis are on the other fuck inside of eight zero percent tolerance for nazis. Yeah just leave the fucking nazis out of. There's gotta be other charismatic people. That maybe you didn't do horrible shit that you can look at and go sorry about his albums now. Just say i guess this is a great career to pay attention to if you just want to track all the kitchen changes to a celebrity persona but like this. Music is trash honestly. This is the truth. I did not realize some of that. He actually was the performer of some of the songs. Until i was doing this. I'm like oh. I didn't even realize that was bowie. That's how golden years. Yes uninteresting to me that it is that david bowie was david. Bowie performed the song or whatever who. Well i mean. Yeah like when we're using word like write songs. It's kind of weird. We're talking about david bowie songs. Also because his legs are straight nonsense most of the time. I mean this is a guy who literally trying to use. The william s burroughs. Cut up method to write songs. So it's straight nonsense. Put on your shoes to dance. The blues away is that is just getting you right in the fields. Every time you hear that hough just give me to the church on time. And this is the academy of an artist where people know like one lyric in a song and then Like silently mouthed. The words watermelon for the rest of the at least eighty percent of most david. Bowie songs are just him talking. First of all and then you'll get to the point where he liked. Does the caterwauling like what he says flour. And let's dance or whatever what the best thing to me about listening to david. Bowie is imagining the faces that he's making when he's pretending like this is singing. Yeah there's a lot of the veins in his neck and he does like the jutted out ally. He took one step past being a mime and like talked and non means not a music career out of it the bridge or middle eight or whatever you wanna call in the song fashion perfect example of the lyrical nonsense in this guy song where the part where it goes. Listen to me listen to me. Talk to me. Don't talk to me. it's like dude. Stop saying one thing in immediately contradicting it and then the the ends with him just going. Oh no i think that's cocaine man. Let's cocaine straight up and down like you. Just don't even know how you feel from wednesday. The next second. I need to talk noy dollars bucks. Only the adults often. We gotta talk some more. I tell you everything all my god..

A day in this manager told him that. If you ever wanted to be famous he had to stop opening doors for himself both metaphorically and literally and literally in on serious stop trying across the board in fact what i want you to do is if you're ever going somewhere with another person and there's a door that you have to walk through just staying there until they open it If they stand there and just like look at you and like what are you doing. Ask questions doesn't matter. Never touch the door handle early seventies. I think this tells them to do it. Nine hundred seventy two ziggy stardust. Boom buck yeah. This is something that manager did with multiple artists okay. This is not proof that david bowie is talented. It's proof did these guys trick works which is paved the way for so many other artists we've covered on this podcast especially bands that have a schtick which is at. Some point became a thing everyone had you had to have a schtick. You had to have like david bowie moment. You had to either dress a certain way or look a certain way as porta. You can't just make music. It's always about the story in the narrative and the image in like the you know what i mean like in. It's crazy how many people have been launched into mega fame levels like david bowie for just being mediocre at everything he ever did but he looks cool. You look as haircuts work terrible. But he looked. I think if david bowie came out right now and did the exact schick that he did back then nobody would care just it only works because of the time that it comes out there are a hundred reasons why david bowie would not be famous if he came out this shit right now mostly because he people probably see through his bullshit so as soon as he got famous this rockstar shit went to his head so fast and he just became even more insufferable than he was as of thirsty little fame hound and then he fucked around and got addicted to the warned drug. That makes you share way too much about what you're thinking while you're talking to journalists. Yeah he got a cocaine addiction and then just ran off at the mouth. One of the reasons that whole rock against racism organization or movement. Or whatever you wanna call it. Even existed is because of how much david bowie could not stop gushing about adolf hitler and fascism interviews. He later said that he was mostly interested in the history of the nazis..

"Was awesome labyrinth. Me with children not awesome at all and mortifying they still the head they like. She's a baby says she's babysitting. The kid is it brother. I can't remember the exact thing. Yeah the coming steal the baby. It's like it's not as big stealing. Babies is fine is disturbing and then she has to go get him back in all the wild david bowie wearing his fucking giant dick piece that he's wearing my piece. Yeah apparently it was even bigger. And they reduce the size of it. Also if you don't think labyrinth is fucked up go find Jim henson son talking about it. Not only is labra fucked up. Everyone who was making new. It was fucked up the whole time like jim. Henson's son talks about how the goblin king bowie's character was meant to represent adult male sexuality which is a jennifer conley yes factors which she is threatened by because she's like becoming a woman soul threatened by adult male sexuality and that's the whole purpose of david bowie role in character. Will i mean he's you know steals the baby and then he has like attending cock wrapped up in his fucking pants. And it's obvious gets a giant dick and its pants not even hidden it. It's a little bit weird that is like marketed to children. You know what's better movie than labyrinth is the never ending story way better. And there's no david bowie in it. So it's great. There's no there's no dixon it. There's no like there's a flying dog dragging. Yeah it's fucking great. Although when the horse dies it's super bummer. Of a scene. There's no says nothing. In labyrinth that could affect emotionally on the level of that scene for. Oh no no no. No no definitely not. That's way it's like you need a kidney. Watch that and the the horses dying your cry. I would probably cry right now..

"I just can't get over the fact that he was. He wanted to be a mime. Like that's what he wanted to do. I wish that he had been a mime to listen to any of this shit. It would be amazing if he was the most most famous mime in all of history. It'd be great. What would he have done is a mine because mine was just where i guess like. I don't even know. They paint their faces white. Yeah i guess. I i don't know i guess it's just going to resonate in my brain. No matter what we talk about this entire thing is he wanted to be a mind but it all kind of makes sense wanted to be a fucking miami. You couldn't even do that so of course he's going steal everything. I have no original thought in my brain. I i like what you're doing. This is my now. I'm so weird look at me. I'm from. I'm from space. Some spaceman corny motherfucker space oddity was basically a novelty song. Don't tell anybody that the moon landing happened and everyone thought that we were gonna be like colonizing space within five years because we put a person on the moon. It was just like a novelty song you know. Why do you say one more thing about the fake bisexual thing. Because i know that people are gonna come after me for this. I know that david bowie had sexual encounters with men. Those were gay for pay aright literally. Everyone who knows him says that's all it was him doing anything he thought might help him get famous. David bowie is probably the single biggest opportunities that we have ever talked about on this podcast and maybe even the biggest snake of person. The whole reason one of his is one of his pupils was permanently. Dilated was because when he was a kid he tried to move in on a girl. His friend was dating. though it's friend punched him in the face or him with a rocker. Something or what happened but nearly every musician whose ever worked for david bowie has gone on record saying the guy was sweet as all hell for as long as he needed you and then he just drop you like a bad habit and walkaway almost everyone he's worked with. He's had problems with these guys. So he's almost like some weird. Social parasite dislike taking what he needs only for him. Take the most charitable thing for sure he did was like bring iggy pop out of a contrary to keep him from doing the drugs that he was doing in helping make albums. That's great but then you've got to take into consideration. All of the mojo. That david bowie was just like sucking from iggy pop the whole time. I mean this guy like definitely tried to practice magic. You cannot tell me that. He wasn't doing spells on people view the older talent. Have you ever seen what we do at shadows. Yes oh my god have used this. Show the energy vampire guy like basically that guy. It's like that but for right exactly like instead of like him being dolls but look at me..

"Madonna's like aggressive in your face confrontational sexuality. Bowie did the same thing. And i know people think that this guy was some kind of great equalizer. Who helped non straight people become accepted in the mainstream but that isn't entirely false narrative. In all you gotta do is go back and read. David bowie interviews. Read him talking about it. Read him gleefully laughing about how much controversy he caused by saying he was bisexual. Then keep reading his interviews years later when he starts saying. He got all that gay stuff out of his system when he was younger. Then keep reading in your views until he starts saying that pretending to be bisexual was the biggest mistake ever made in that interview with playboy. He told cameron grow quote. It took a bit of exposure in a few heavy rumors about me before the gaze said we disown david bowie and they did. Of course they knew that i wasn't what they were fighting for and quote doesn't get any clearer than that giddy. I get that you thought this and get to. This is a huge part of your identity. But it's not. Yeah a really actually fucked up. It's super fights fucked up in today's terms but it's also just fucked up in general even if you weren't to apply our current views on these things retro actively it's just still fucked up thing to do to pretend that you are something knowing that this is a marginalized group of people that is going to get people talking about you but it adds to his story. You know what i mean like. It's just it's It's something interesting for people to write about your life. That's not accurate. Well then you're just a liar using real lives and things that people lives. People really live to garner attention for yourself. There's no other way to look at it. And that's not just applying the way that we look at the world today retroactive. Nah just shitty and it would will always be shitting. It was messed up at the time. And then the other thing like i. I don't think that there is any evidence that anyone can show me. That david bowie. 'cause gay people to become more accepted. I don't think that that's the thing. I don't think you can say that. Because the reason why he did this shit was to just shock people he was doing. Howard stern's stuff he consciously did it to try to get a rise outta people. There was only self-serving goal. Yeah and there's no. I don't think there's anything you can point to to be like. My dad hated that. I was gay and david bowie pretending to suck is guitar. Players dick on stage made. My dad accepts me for who. I am hugh..

"I'm sure that people who love david bowie. Ally of the same people would like oac for ripping off so many artists. But boy was even worse. Than noel gallagher. Because at least doesn't hype himself up as some kind of genius for ripping off the rolling stones. Okay bowie like brags about stealing ideas. For mick jagger and brags about how mick jagger never tells him any of the things that he's working on anymore because boy we would just steal it and because this is the thing wasn't just stealing songs or like album cover artists or just ideas. He was taking entire identities. was lifting. People personas nothing he ever did was original or even trying to be original even at lightning bolt. But everyone considers to be synonymous with david bowie directly lifted from elvis presley's necklaces. David bowie took elvis's necklace painted on his face. And everyone's like he's genius. It is say to think if you get to a certain point as an artist. Musician everything you do. Even if it's blatantly ripping off something else people just think. You're a fucking brilliant. Oh my god. You're you're fucking brilliant. They will find a way to view it. In the most charitable light. He's paying tribute. It's an omar no motherfucker. He's stealing shit it's an old. It's a tribute. Every era of david. Bowie career can be summed up with a direct reference to his most obvious contemporary influence. And the work that influence was doing or had already done without fail will always be more interesting and of better quality across the board. Then david bowie hit or miss attempts to appropriate for the masses arguable. The other thing about it is there a lot of times. He was making fun of this shit and his fans totally missed the joke. Cameron crowe interviewed david bowie for playboy magazine in the seventies. Yes this was the seventies. Yes they have. A boy was on cocaine at the time so a lot of people are going to think that just saying while shit but you told me if you think. He's lying about this bowie. Talking about the young americans album quote the definitive plastic soul record. It's the squash remains of ethnic music as it survives in the age of muzak rock written and sung by a white limi- and quote right before that david bowie calls the song fame one of his biggest songs. He calls it a bluff that works in the same interview he talks about how much of a put on ziggy stardust was always meant to be he was making fun of.

"Replaced he basically lou reed impersonator. Look somewhat like lou reed but bowie just like jaw. This guy's ear offer like forty five minutes thinking that he was lou reed holy shit just the again i mean that is like i can't believe that he recovered from just either one of these things on their own let alone. Both of these things actually happening in his life. What is that called and family when they do the ways. There's a name for it. I don't know i don't watch. Tv shows there's not. It's a common thing in comedies. Where they live. Cut away to like something happening. I would picture. Turning into a rocket ship and like blasting off earth never coming back becoming you know space van permanently. Maybe that's why he did what he did. Because he was so awkward. Being himself he had to create the image of david bowie because he realized that he was unlikable i think if he presented the world with david bowie vo person. None of this happened because he was such an asshole. So it's almost not even worth talking about. How much of a rip-off artists david bowie was. Because he openly bragged about it just quick examples. The song queen bitch everyone loves. Green bitch is a shameless rip. Off of the eddie. Cochran song three steps to heaven which was a number one single in the uk so like. I don't think that david bowie really thought he was getting away with something by ripping off that song. He ripped off somewhere over the rainbow so hard for the song star man that sometimes bowie would sing lyrics somewhere over the rainbow in his concerts Very famous story of elton john freaking out and running out of the concert hall when bowie sang somewhere over the rainbow because he was like. I can't take it like he's ruining. I hope that they develop a time machine. At some point we die. I wanna go back to all these moments time. It'd be the background being like. Oh shit this is when he did the mind thing. All history of rock as john just has to be rewritten if we could actually go back in time and see a apply our modern conscious minds to events in real time. None of this happens the way that happened. Like the only reason so much of what you think about music is in. Your head is because not everything that these people did is in your head. Yeah a lot of people's careers shouldn't exist if you actually knew all of the godawful cringe. Bullshit they did in real life people. Don't try to find out like people. Don't look we'll also don't let this like not as part of your story of life if you're trying to have this image of being like an artist and weird and whatever you're not running out and telling everyone these stories david. Bowie is the kind of artists. Where if you're a fan of his and you read any on his book written about him. You're probably gonna wish you didn't read that book. Yeah we probably should run through of fast overview of his career as a rip off artists. Just for all the kids. Who do you try to ignore reality and not read the books though. Is this real fast early. David bowie is just him ripping off..

Interview With Dan Westergren

"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died. We had to listen to all the versions of space. Oddity that we could find.

We'll discuss the many transformations an amazing accomplishments as the last great english rockstar. So popping those earbuds enjoy Welcome back to the. Let it roll. Podcast host nate wilcox once again. We've got paul trinka with this author of a book. I'm brian jones book on pop. And now we're gonna talk about his book on david bowie. Starman paul welcome. It's great to be here good to have you back. So you wrote this book in the middle you rotate book. I and the brian jones book most recently and boy came out about almost eight years ago. Now gosh amazing. Okay right if you say so so comparing these three subjects. Brian jones obviously other than you know his massive accomplishment at forming the rolling stones but otherwise it was just a complete disaster. I mean a tragic tale. Iggy pop overcame things but was a long series of disasters really until he turned his life around in the eighties. David bowie on the other hand had lots of failure and struggle. But i mean a success machine decade long run at as one of the great rock artists. Another decade is one of the biggest superstars popular music. What's the difference when you're dealing with subjects that struggled versus subjects. That succeed so much. Well i guess one of the differences. What iggy rather disparagingly termed as david's executive qualities time when they were a strange. I mean that's what he told me you know he he just. David was well organized in a way. A rock star star. Hats shouldn't be and you know. I think when i was a kid i had part of that. I shared those misgivings. He just seemed to be a little bit too knowing. And of course i was wrong because it was really when i did the ibo. The certainly the scales fell from my eyes. I thought no. We'd david does i guess executive qualities something he worked on that were an intrinsic part of his art and enabled him to continue his art for longer. But yeah very very different character and Way far more kind of multidimensional and complex not necessarily. Not all at one time. You need just went through many different phases. He was much more of a merrick character. Somebody harder to nail down. So you know goodell goodell subject to get dug into. Yeah and i really enjoyed reading the book and especially you know reading it. I think i read it when it came out pretty quickly just for fun. Page turner about a rockstar. But after he passed away went back and reread it. More thoughtfully and my appreciation from really has deepened. And and i want to talk about sort of three themes in this interview. 'cause there's just too much to cover in one hour with david bowie but i want i want to talk about his personas. The chameleon aspect is obviously the most famous thing people talk about..

Sober Holiday Survival

"Welcome to recovery. Happy hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stop drinking. I'm your host tricia and in my stocking this year. I hope santa brings me the limited edition. David bowie barbie doll that sold out last year. Despite my attempts to tell santa to preorder it from two different game stop locations just in case. Thank you for joining me well. Happy december or folks. We are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season. And i believe you can absolutely do this without drinking last week. We talked about tips for staying alcohol-free this holiday season and today i'm going to complete the rest of that list so go back and listen to last week's episode if you haven't already come back and join me when you're done. Are you back okay. today. I'm going to start off with this alcohol-free tip focus on the event you're celebrating. Yup parties are usually meant to celebrate a thing. You know an event a person whatever beyond our own addiction or gray area drinking problem whatever you wanna call it. It's also are usually our garbage culture that turns drinking into the focus of an event so for a holiday party. Think about what you're celebrating. That's jesus or hanukkah or just getting together with your family. Mix celebrating that thing your goal. Maybe you've got a relative in town who you normally don't get to see. Take some time to celebrate that you know catch up with them. Maybe it's getting to hold a new baby or play with your nieces and nephews. You can use these opportunities without alcohol to really be present and those moments and appreciate everything that's memorable and real about them. I always say the same thing about birthdays and weddings. The event is to celebrate a person doing something really special so make them what. You're celebrating because it's not all about us and getting drunk last week. I asked everyone to write a list of things. We like about the holidays and use that list as a resource and celebrate those things so find things to get excited about. It can be whatever you want. Bring ingredients to make a really cool any drink with like twelve different components get dressed up where high heels that you don't have to worry about falling off of bring a game like look for things to make a party fund because parties are supposed to be just that fun a great way to stay busy and distract yourself if you need. It is to help the hostess or the host or the person who's having the party go cleanup napkins offer to wash plates offer to help i guarantee you that. If you're listening to this podcast then you have absolutely been a party hosts worst nightmare at point in your life so use this as an opportunity to give back and level out your car a little bit. Here's a simple one. do not i repeat. Do not offer to be the designated driver. Especially if it's a party that might go late if you're feeling freaked out and you need to bail. Then you don't need a reason to stay put. You should always have an exit plan. You know and being someone's dd cancels that out entirely the couple of times that i've offered to do this. I ended up staying at a party way too late when i really just needed to go home. It's twenty twenty. We have uber and left for a reason so let people use it. You know a big part of getting through the holidays without alcohol is learning how to deal with our most triggering loved ones and having the tools not to drink over it boundaries are really big deal boundaries are a big deal for example if you know that someone at the gathering relentlessly pushes shots on you. Then no you're boundary ahead of time if that person offers me a shot. I'm going to say xyz if they keep offering me shots. I'm going to make my exit. You know you create a boundary beforehand. And if someone crosses the line you already know what to do to stay healthy and sober. You know it's just about having a plan had time. Another example is if you have a typical pattern. That's a reason behind your drinking like if communicating with your parents tends to be tents and. Let's say they're always saying something passive aggressive and you've never spoken up about it but instead you've always pushed it down and drink over it. Well this is the time to find a boundary not saying that you need to confront them during christmas and try to resolve like twenty five years of old trauma but you can say something like i need to go get some fresh air. I'm gonna go for a quick walk around the block. That's a boundary. You know when you decided not to engage in an activity that triggers you to drink or maybe it's one of those all day christmas parties that starts at eleven. Am and goes until midnight where everyone's been drinking for like thirteen straight hours. Maybe you've always stuck around because you thought that that was expected of you and you never had the words to speak up this year. Consider telling everyone beforehand that you've made plans for the second half of the day and you have to leave at three o'clock maybe your pet sitting any need to go home and feed the dog. It's up process of planning ahead and saying if this thing happens then i will choose to do this thing because it will keep me from drinking.

"Well the country in the world's talking about it. I want to start with one year colleagues Shop and i want you to listen to so much. Answer this question to Jennifer schneider She's quoted as saying the following things. Virtual healthcare is growing. It's getting to the point now. You're not going to hate it. What does it mean to you when you hear. A clinician say to a group of patients were consumer class. That you're not gonna hate this anymore. What comes to mind. And how does this relationship solve that problem of disliking the care you were getting going to the big parking lot paying the seven dollars and a park having to walk through the labyrinth dodging david bowie on the way to your clinic and finally getting there to see who you needed to see what comes to mind there when you hear jennifer say that it. It's a great summation of. What would i have felt that has been broken. Healthcare for past fifteen years. As i think we also s consumers in this marketplace obscene seen how content has been reorganized by the internet how communities have been reorganize how entertainment commerce more recently even banking. When was the last time that you actually stepped foot in a bank. And so this this notion of you're gonna drive twenty to thirty minutes to this obstacle or building and then ended up waiting an hour at least I think comes an hours like a a gift to see physician. Pretend to fifteen minutes us. We'll give you a whole bunch of information that you're not gonna process And send you on your way driving back down twenty or thirty minutes in some cases i haven't come back again. You know in two or three days or a week is you've got to get lab tests. Imaging tasks don seem so You know sort of disconnected from how we live our lives today in terms of the immediacy of the things that were able to get it all at our fingertips and so I think this is what jennifer was talking about it. I think you alluded to just so nicely is the experience of inter connectivity through now wearable sensors software that personalizes methodist to you And always on connectivity Through the cloud Starting to make its way into healthcare and covid nineteen is only accelerated people's view in notion of what's possible in healthcare that today was just a method or a vision it is absolutely accelerating ed From everyone we've been speaking to And of course you are walking this walk on the acceleration happening before we're ready So it's really an exciting time. It also can be a harrowing right if you're not prepared for loot when you hear jennifer say consumers and patients aren't gonna hate healthcare anymore because they're they're access the can get what what comes to mind view especially in terms of telecom. Bunga sure so. I think that people often talk about. How virtual care makes access so much easier and they often frame this in terms of a conversation around what you might consider medical convenience And i'd like to just draw out the issue that it's not just a question of convenience. It's really around the quality of care so on telemedicine side we see many individuals who seek care and they end up having pretty serious medical problems like a recent case where the individual Actually had some big chest discomfort in our little shortness of breath and ended up having multiple blood clots in his lungs and he would have just probably waited it out at home with really a life threatening medical condition and on the longo side. You're really talking about individuals who for the first time in their lives are taking care of these problems around blood. Sugar control blood pressure control. So they're really getting the care that they need because we've made it easier for them and have lowered a number of these barriers which are traditionally put the place and may care most difficult and as you might imagine during the time of covid. All of these issues have been highlighted. So if you are at home trying to do your telecommuting also trying to teach your kids at the same time who might be doing their own remote learning. It may not be the easiest thing for you to decide that you need to take you know a bus to a train to train to bus in order to get to a medical appointment to have somebody review your blood sugars with you so to make that care possible particularly in this time just makes all the sense in the world.

"How did you come up with the name modern love well, it was part of a process. Yeah. We had all these different names that we tried and. I remember one of them was truly madly deeply. And I would now be called truly madly deeply editor, which is a really different kind of job title. Modern love editor But I thought of the David Bowie Song Modern Love. In suggesting modern love and literally almost any time I see. The words modern love I mean, it's worn off a little bit over the years but But it's hard for me not to read modern love and automatically hear. Hear that, Song. Would you sing it for our listeners Know because I, don't know that words but you have the. summit. Yeah. Yeah Love locks beside me nine. The second is walks beside me. Put my faith in God. And no religious. That's about as I can do. But there was a great. Story that. Spun. Out of that. Of writer had sent an essay, it didn't really work in the end, but it was about her covering love songs for other random people. She would send them a little audio file playing Ukulele and singing a cover of some song Ukulele, and that's what the essay was about. And when I rejected a A week or two passed and I this email. That I didn't. Recognize the name or anything and open it up, and there was no message there was just an audio file. I pressed play a little. Worried that it was some. Virus or whatever. Pay. Was Her playing always modern love. The UKULELE. I went back and read her essay. Oh, the sweetest thing. And did you ever published her essay? Now I didn't. But it kind of hard not to. into. Today's essay is tracking the demise of my marriage on Google maps by Maggie Smith. Was published in January twenty nineteen and is read by ORLA Cassidy. My husband moved out about six weeks ago. Marking the end of our nearly nineteen year relationship. But Google maps hasn't noticed yet. That morning I had whisked the children away. So he and two friends from law school could load his things into a U. Haul and drive to the house he had rented. We had agreed that he would be the one to move out. And we agreed on what he would take. Dining, room set and painting that had belonged to his late boss. The sideboards, we had bought to hold our wedding dishes. And the Antique armoire neighboring our first apartment complex had left us because it wouldn't fit in his truck. I had packed most of my husband's things because he works long hours. I had sifted through our books and CDs, our Christmas ornaments, coffee mugs, the blender, his the food processor mine, the biscuit cutter his. The muffin tin mine. The life we had lived. Split. Between us. I still haven't seen his house. Only a few blocks away. I'm not sure what possessed me to Google our address a few weeks ago I'll on a writing residency in. Tucson. Far From my home in Ohio. But I did. And right was. My house on Google maps. Still inside. And still I think in love with me.

Remembering Chadwick Boseman

"The world is still shocked and heartbroken over the death of Black Panther Star Chadwick. He inspired millions of fans with his work while privately battling colon cancer. He died Friday at the very young age of forty three, and while we all struggle to process this news, one thing is very, very clear. Chadwick was a true hero. Settlement. There's no way back. We Sat. To me, it's always about who will you get to be on screen with you get to work with everyday. Give me beautiful. Give me a number on my back. Give. You the. There was an honor to be able to trade as man and. To be able to do something that matters. There's no reason why you would think you would. Ever, get to do a superhero movies I mean be especially as a black actor and certainly not the lead of a superhero movie. King still. Hurts. Pressure but I feel like that's the thing I like the most about today. C., kids come up and say that he's my favorite character. Chadwick's passing shock to everyone including those who knew him best like Panther Director Ryan Kugler spent the year writing Black Panther too he had. No did not seem to know that Chadwick was sick at all. It's just amazing to me how he was able to. Keep. Something like this such. A secret nobody knew how much he was suffering I think not to take away from Cherbourg for a minute, but I think when you think about celebrities and you'll think back on it there have been a lot of celebrities that I've kept their cancer diagnoses a secret. You know we just had Kelly Preston who died from breast cancer David Bowie kept his illness a secret until he died Steve Jobs same thing I think what Chadwick Bozeman really wanted to do was live his life to the fullest and he didn't want anybody to. Pity him? He wasn't that guy you know what I mean and I think that he is and will always be pitted me of strength when it comes to me because he's always had held his head high, he's always represented himself and my community in the highest regard and I just I think you'll be remembered for that for the rest of his life. I don't think he wanted people to see him go through that struggle and make the last four months of his life about the illness.

"Background because most of you know the story. There's been ongoing protests in Wauwatosa even before the George Floyd situation over this, that and the other thing and They have focused locally on the case of Officer Joseph MENSA, who is the police officer who shot and killed a man who, armed with a stolen gun was part of a group that was causing a disturbance and running toward Mayfair Mall. While armed with that stolen gun. He also had 36 rounds of ammunition and an extended magazine. And according to the police investigation, he fired a shot that officer men sub and protesters have been going after Officer men ever since The wall photos the city council. Recommended that he his employment be terminated in the fire and police Commission has suspended him. As I had predicted. This is not satisfied the protesters who have disrupted government meetings who made wild statements at a public meeting at hard Park, and then on Saturday, I took their protest directly to the home. Off officer Men's his girlfriend, who is a police officer in Milwaukee. Where Officer Benson Wass and a situation developed in which Officer MENSA says that he was shot at Before we talk to Chief Webber. I want to deal with two new developments today. The first A letter that was sent today by Congressman Jim Sense it better. Guys, you probably know this city election today to replace time is the sense of better who's been in the house for a long, long time Republican primary Today is between Clift Temple and Scott Fitzgerald and the Republican candidate for that seed is going to be determined in today's election. But sensitive writer is still there since it brothers. This thick includes portions, but not all of Wauwatosa. He sent the following letter to me, your dentist McBride of Wauwatosa today, Dear Mayor McBride. I write to you today concerning the deteriorating security and policing in Wauwatosa. The protests, which may have started peacefully have been growing ever more violent and the event Saturday night outside the residence of Officer Joseph Mintz have required a meat require immediate leadership and strong action from you. And the elected leaders of Wauwatosa first allow me to be clear that I am and always will be supportive of American citizens. First Amendment rights, having said that ever since the death of George Flight in Minneapolis and the protests and the protests the incident sparked There has been a push by community leaders throughout the country to weaken, defund and abolish police departments in several cities. Locally, Officer MENSA has become the poster child for this movement due to his three officer involved shooting incidents. Officer MENSA has dedicated his life to protecting our community and has been cleared by the Milwaukee County District attorney's office of two of the three shootings in which he has been involved. The third incident is still under review. Despite the decisions by the Milwaukee County D. A. You're common council passed a resolution calling for the termination of officer menses employment with the Wauwatosa Police Department. While I understand the common Council wants to bring reforms that the OPD the consequences of their actions are having serious repercussions for the residents of your community. Citizens of Baba Tosa are being harassed by these protests. Protesters who have now laid siege to a residence in your community where a gun was fired at a home with women and Children inside. Actions like this, and the breakdown of law and order will spread fear and force the citizens of Allah toasted to reconsider their choice to reside there. The mass emigration from your city would be devastating to the very fabric of that community. In addition to the detrimental effect it would have on your tax base schools and city sciences. As I believe we are teetering at a crisis. I am offering my assistance. I stand ready to contact federal law enforcement agencies and bring them to Wauwatosa in order to bring peace and tranquility back to the community. I look forward to hearing from you. Well, we have reached a critical tipping point in Wauwatosa. I am confident that if we work together, we can restore the rule of law. It is crucial that we strive to preserve the excellent quality of life that has drawn so many toe work. And raise their families in Wauwatosa and signed by Jim Sensenbrenner, member of Congress. His district includes portions of the city of Wauwatosa. Seconds slow. State representative David Bowie and Milwaukee who says he was part of the demonstration in protests that occurred outside this residents. That officer Benson was at on Saturday night is saying that nobody tried to kill Officer MENSA, and he's blaming MENSA for all of the developments that occurred. Quoted in the Js online today, Bowen said, and I quote from the story, Bowen said No protesters fired at MENSA during the protest. It should Bob said 50 to 60 people outside menses Wauwatosa home again. It's actually his girl friend's home. But he's residing there. Bowling and other protesters said they were provoked by MENSA before the physical altercation that took place out outside his home quote. It was clearly communicated as we were trying to figure out what happened that it was Joseph MENSA in that tussle that turned off the safety on that firearm and told the trigger. Owen said today, the Wauwatosa Police Department issued a statement saying there is a lot of false information and rumors being circulated on social media and through the news media regarding the events on Saturday night, August 8th outside the home where Wauwatosa Police officer Joseph MENSA was stag best includes an accurate information and allegations contained an official press releases from a state elected official was outside of the home. Well criminal conduct and a shooting occurred. What occurred Saturday night was not organized a peaceful protest. It was a targeted planned act of violence against one of our police officers. In our community. This is an active ongoing investigation and evidence continues to be gathered regarding the events of August 8. Investigators are looking through a large amount of high quality video footage from the scene and are working to identify suspects and vehicles involved in any illegal activity.

"I've been approached about the student teacher story before by people who always seem to have this moralistic agenda to tell this cautionary tale of young people who are in over their heads or taken advantage of with too much freedom and sex and drugs, and rock and roll.

Franois Clemmons: Hi from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

"There has been so much written about Mister Rogers telling you that if you wanted to stay on the TV show. You could not be out of the closet. Did that make you adjust how you were behaving and presenting in private even in your personal life? Yes because I felt people first of all they show the photograph to friend so I felt an obligation not to be caught in those compromising situations because you see the first time someone told him I had gone to a club down in Pittsburgh called the play pin so I went there with a buddy of mine. We were dancing sweating and I go home. That was the extent of it but evidently somebody took it upon themselves to tell him that the other I've seen there and I felt violated adult man. Who in the world is telling him what? I'm doing what I do when I'm not on the show is my business and yet you ultimately agreed to stay in the closet. If you're GONNA stay on the show that was an emotional slash spiritual decision. I began to feel that I was therefore reason. Not just a happenstance. Once you have this inner feeling that I was at a meeting with destiny that I could not be casual and I couldn't deny what I knew I wasn't going to. I thought about what? What would it be like if you don't hold up your end of the bargain if you don't sacrifice in a way that has honored brings honor so? I really had a sense of obligation and commitment responsibility. Those words they haunted me. And when you say you had a responsibility who or what was that responsibility to the responsibility was to have a good face for white people who are watching this show. People were a little different in how they felt about my being on that show but white people would say all. That's terrible. Mr Rogers was so kind to you and you are gay person. You were caught in that alley that boxed up the back of the truck or somewhere and that's a disgrace. That's what I felt. I could not allowed to happen. We were there any out. Gay Black People in the media at that time No there weren't a lot. No you know who led the band the the European rock singers George and another one who just died. I was that David Bowie. Yes yes yes. Yes yes now. You're asking me specifically about black people. None of these guys are named or black. And I ask that because I didn't know if you ever considered not taking Mr Rogers advice and becoming out because there were so few media the I'm I'm a front runner. I do not care what they think. I'm speaking of my personal opinion. I've been blessed with strength and I will take care of myself. I don't care what they think but I love the man who did Fred Rogers and it would have been very very painful for him to have to go through that whole episode so I sat and I thought about it and I said you can do this you can and you will. I hadn't had love from father and it was so unconditional so bountiful that I sent. I can't give that up. I've never had it now. I've got it and I'm not going to throw it away. I'm not gonNA treat it lightly and casually. I love this man. He's treating me in a way that makes me feel whole makes me feel like a person that I'm wanted and needed and cherished in that community. They became my family all of them. So coming out you would have lost the show. You also would have lost. Your family would have been everything. It would have been a terrible loss. I had pulled in so tight with my stepfather. Beat me up. I said you know their relatives and I can't trust them. I began to allow myself to be feeling to be hillman when Mr Rogers asked you to stay in the closet. If he wanted to be on the show he also suggested that you get married. Would you have gotten married to your ex wife? Had he not suggested yes because he wasn't the only one I think who was advising me. She was my best friend so we hung up all the time all the time. An hour on the telephone was nothing for us and I didn't feel at that time that I was courting her as a lover rather than just simply expressing the this is my friend. I prefer her overall. You guys and you did have a few gay friends who knew you were gay. What was their reaction to you getting married. Oh they were surprised this what. What are you getting married for and I said well. That's my destiny. I think that's my life. I do have a lot of affection for her. And maybe that'll turn into erotic attraction it never did and when I was making love to her I was thinking about my boyfriend or somebody and so it became apparent to me that I had made a serious mistake because she was a very very nice person and she was deserving of a better relationship. And that's what I basically said to her. You know I can't give you can't be the husband that you need a want. I just can't yeah. I felt like a failure I had tried to do something and I was really down in the in the mouth say. I was so depressed that I had tried something big and I had bit off more than I could chew. Did Fred Rogers ever meet any of the menu had relationships with Oh later on he did and I have to tell you. He didn't have anything against gay people. I don't know how to share with you but I didn't have very many relationships with people. I've never lived with anyone except my former wife. I've always lived along not by choice. I think there were only two people that I had very quiet. Demure relationships with that lasted for fifteen years. Each were they quite because you felt that you couldn't come out of the closet fully. Yes in fact one of the sediment don't dress up tonight so they won't recognize you. You won't get any attention and just the two of us can go to this restaurant and this movie and be very quiet loving and cuddly sweet and when did you come out publicly. Maybe about ninety. When I started the Harlem Spiritual Ensemble. I felt very today I was I was holding a big bundle of life. I decided I'm coming out. I don't care who knows it. I'M NOT GONNA hide it. And so from then on people s not very many. I told him yes.
