Thinking about David Bowie and rooting with Adamrocks for him to show on stage with Adam ( just in case, I'm writing my will - 'cause I'd be DED) , I bumped into some interesting stuff...
2. Freddie and Bowie: "In the end, David said, 'This is stupid, why don't we just write one?' " The result was their collaboration "Under Pressure" -- initially entitled "People on Streets." "It came about by pure chance," Mercury explained later. The tune, which was recorded in Queen's Mountain Studios in Montreux, Switzerland, after David had met up with the band in the Swiss town's "pub," turned out to be among Queen's most challenging. The mixing desk collapsed, Bowie wanted to remake the track from scratch, and things came to a head. At one point, Bowie refused to allow its release but later backed down. The October 1981 release was Bowie's first single with another artist. It reached No. 29 in the U.S. and became Queen's second U.K. No. 1.
Asked in 2002 by Blender whether he still believed his public declaration [ about his bisexuality] was the biggest mistake he ever made, David replied:
Interesting. [Long pause] I don’t think it was a mistake in Europe, but it was a lot tougher in America. I had no problem with people knowing I was bisexual. But I had no inclination to hold any banners nor be a representative of any group of people. I knew what I wanted to be, which was a songwriter and a performer, and I felt that bisexuality became my headline over here for so long. America is a very puritanical place, and I think it stood in the way of so much I wanted to do.
I think David and Freddie are the biggest influences on Adam, especially David. He is "the ultra-flamboyant king of glam rock", after all, but I feel that with Trespassing Adam has started to slowly steer away, finding his own sound and style. It's very interesting to me how Adam created TP 'in real time', literally 'documenting' this change in him, maturing as an artist and a person, and falling in love , captured in the songs as they happened.
It gives the album authenticity, imo, and kind of a 'documentary' autobiographical value.
The only downside to that is that I think we will be waiting for album number 3 just as long, in order for him to collect and brew that lifetime material, but it also makes me really excited and giddy with anticipation. This Queen collaboration is a huge chunk already there, and it is definitely going to result in some great songs for that album, I'm positive.
vivlite: We should call shoutbox, Atop 2! I didn't know there was a separate thread going on down here..I'll have to visit more often. I see posters here I don't see on the thread. I hope that doesn't mean you feel alienated on the main thread..
