"When Julien Temple made his film of Absolute Beginners he asked me to take photos of all the cast members and I spent a week on the movie set taking portraits of all the actors. As well as appearing in the film, David Bowie had written the title song, and was going to make a video to promote it. The record ended up at number two on the single charts. The video was shot in a variety of locations around The Embankment of the Thames and although I had many great images from the video, David and I felt that we should shoot a special photo for the cover.

We set up our lights near the Houses of Parliament and waited for a break in the filming, but, not surprisingly, they were running late and we ended up taking the photo just as Big Ben chimed midnight. Given the time restriction, the photographs were done very quickly, but working with David is so easy that we only needed to shoot two rolls of film.

On seeing the contact sheets, there was one frame where he had this big smile, but his publicist told me that he would not approve it as he never smiled on his record covers. However, when we want through the photos together, David agreed that there was something special about this frame, and agreed for it to be used. To this day it’s the only time he ever smiled on a cover.”

"I’m so sad when I look back at these things sometimes and wonder where all the bric-a-brac went - the rings, and the passports, and the personal items. I had a very close friend, a girlfriend, in Berlin when I was living there, who unfortunately was dying of cancer, and she underwent chemotherapy treatment and went bald, and I gave her the fedora. I kept that fedora all those years and I gave her the fedora. She wore that until the day she died. Poor girl. But it had a good home for its last few months, so I know where that went."

David Bowie - Christmas Greeting 2013


David Bowie has delivered a Christmas message via BBC Radio 6 Music in which he does an impression of Elvis Presley:

"Hello everybody, this is David Bowie making a telephone call from the US of A. At this time of the year I can’t help but remember my British-ness and all the jolly British folk, so here’s to you and have yourselves a Merry little Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you very much."
