Rare David Bowie Demo Discovered

A rare David Bowie demo has been discovered and will go up for auction:

Hadfield recalls ‘Our agent, Eric Easton, who also managed The Rolling Stones, asked us to do a demo so he could try and get us an auction at Decca. So in early 1963 I booked into R.G.Jones small studio in Morden. In preparation for the demo David and our guitarist Neville Wills wrote 2/3 songs. We had decided that we would do a couple of guitar instrumentals and one original song. I chose “I Never Dreamed” as it was the strongest, the other two were a bit weak! I also decided that David was the best person to sing it and give the right interpretation. So this became the very first recording of David Jones (Bowie) singing 55 years ago! There is no other recording featuring David as lead in existence.

David Bowie Stamps Coming Soon

Britain’s postal agency will be releasing some David Bowie stamps:

Royal Mail said it will be the first time it has dedicated an entire issue to an individual music artist.

The 10 stamps, including images of famous album covers Hunky Dory and Aladdin Sane, will go on sale on March 14.

Four of the stamps will show Bowie in action live on tour, ranging from his Ziggy Stardust tour of 1972 to his 2004 Reality Tour.
