Geoff MacCormack spent years on the road with David Bowie and The Spiders from Mars and tells all about it in a new book, From Station to Station: Travels with Bowie 1973 – 1976 (Mind the price of that volume, quite dear).
An excerpt from MacCormack’s column in The Independent
Bowie and I boarded the SS Canberra at the end of January 1973…
Cruising to New York took about a week. Nobody really took much notice of Bowie, apart from a couple of swooning gay hairdressers; they were far too old to know anything about him. The journey was long and languorous; suffice to say, after a while afternoon tea was an occasion to be looked forward to.
