Melbourne, Jan. 23 (ANI): David Bowie’s musical excellence is not unknown to anyone.recently another facet came forth with his talent of impersonations of his rock n’ roll contemporaries.
In the newly-leaked audio from 1985, Bowie can be heard goofing off in the studio, while recording the title track to the Absolute Beginners soundtrack, reports News.com.au.
The six-amazing-minute video has the Thin White Duke’s spot-on impersonations of fellow music icons Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Tom Waits and Neil Young.
British record producer Mark Saunders released the recording this week in the wake of the music legend’s death following an 18-odd-month cancer battle.
“At the end of the session, he broke into the impersonations and I realised that these might get erased at some point, so I quickly put a cassette in and hit record,” Saunders writes in a blog post accompanying the newly-unearthed audio. (ANI)
