David Bowie and his guitarist
Last week we lost a great singer, songwriter and performer! He sold 140 million records all over the world. His early music is described as art-rock. Bowie was a real musical chameleon with influences from different types of music.
Over the years, Bowie had some great guitarists in his band.
One of my favorites is Stevie Ray Vaughan
Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble made their first appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival 17 juli, 1982. With the other acts all being acoustic, Stevie accelerated with their powerful Texas Blues. Ready to rock the house! The audience wasn't prepared for that and the Texans where booed!
Stevie felt heartbroken, but that same night they met Bowie. David lived in a small village near Montreux and saw their performance. This is where David asked Stevie to play on his new album. Stevie accepted the invitation.
