The Moon Of Alabama

Bildergebnis für david bowie 1978

David Bowie is one year after his death more present than long times before. You all can see it on the blogs we use to visit day by day. And also on German television. Yesterday they featured him the whole evening and I was tired but couldn't go to sleep until it was finished. A couple of hours showing the genius and his work during 40 years of his career. I am still impressed of looking back to all styles he did during his career. What I almost forgot was his affinity to Kurt Weil and Berthold Brecht. I saw a clip from their opera The Rise And Fall Of The Town Mahogany. The main song there was Alabama Song for sure and made popular by The Doors long time ago. This song is played live by Mr. Bowie in the late 70's in German television and shows him in a very good condition and it seems like he had really fun playing this song.
