PAUL TRYNKA: DAVID BOWIE: STARMAN

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, August 24, 2011 - 11:30am

He has recorded and produced some of the most important rock albums of the 70s and 80s. Always changing; never staying the same, David Bowie’s best music seemed one step ahead of everyone else; surprising even his most devoted listeners. But despite his tremendous success. Bowie’s uniquely productive career has been rocked by  drug addiction, failed relationships, poor management and sometimes paranoia. Tonight we talk with editor and writer PAUL TRYNKA about his monumental biography DAVID BOWIE: STARMAN. Tune in and listen to Paul discuss Bowie’s time in LA; his work on THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH, Bowie’s friendships with Marc Bolan and Iggy Pop and Bowie’s amazingly creative period in Berlin.
