Bowie & Hutch The Book
John Hutchinson informed us his memoir 'Bowie & Hutch' The book will be published on July 1th 2014.
Bowie & Hutch is an unusual memoir, Bowie a world superstar and Hutch a comparatively little known, semi-retired jazz guitarist living in rural East Yorkshire.
John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson was Bowie’s musical collaborator, side-man, accompanying musician and friend, and his story should be an essential read for Bowie fans around the world.
An off and on musical relationship then continued for seven years, from the Marquee Club days to the fall of Ziggy Stardust in 1973.
At this video you can see John Hutchinson playing 'Life is a Circus' at the David Bowie fanclub meeting in Amsterdam, October 21, 2007.

Low, Heroes and Lodger Album As Penguin Books
Hi there, I thought I'd write and let you know about a series of prints I've made of three of David Bowie's albums as if they'd been written as books instead of songs.
I've taken the 'Berlin Trilogy' of Low, "Heroes" and Lodger and created a mini-library for each, with each track as its own novel, all arranged in the order they appear on the original albums.
The prints are available here: Low, Heroes and Lodger.
I hope you like them.

GOLDEN YEARS ARE NOW
We're happy to share the news about our upcoming Golden Years Are Now tour with you, which is taking place in theaters across Holland in 2013-2014. At the moment we're preparing the whole thing: the setlist, the visuals, the stage setting. So much fun to do! It's always a joy to play the songs of our all time hero David Bowie. Not only the hits, but some hidden gems and Next Day tunes too. Here's some information:
From Space Oddity to Heroes and from Let's Dance to Hallo Spaceboy, for many the music of living legend David Bowie is the soundtrack of their lives. And Bowie still intrigues. After 10 years of absence he reappeared out of the blue and sang "Where Are We Now?".
The Dutch band Echo Bowie takes you on a journey through the various periods of the career of the greatest innovator in pop music. The concert is visually inspired by Bowie's own sources of inspiration: London, Hollywood, the 30's theatre scene in Berlin, William Burroughs, Andy Warhol.The band will criss-cross through time and space. With the numerous hits as travel guide.
Ziggy Stardust Fan Art
David Bowie is definitely a source of inspiration. Here are two dolls inspired by the Ziggy Stardust era. They are made with yarn in a style called amigurumi crochet. One doll is Aladdin Sane, the other one has Ziggy's eyepatch.
HEROES: A Bowie-Inspired Theatre Production in Berlin
Berlin has obviously been an enormous inspiration for David Bowie's life and his work: his "Berlin triology" is legendary and with his comeback single "Where Are We Now?" in 2013, he went back to his time in the city in the late 1970s.
Both, Bowie and the city of Berlin serve now as inspiration for a one-of-kind art and theatre production taking place on August 24 in Berlin Kreuzberg: HEROES - WHERE ARE WE NOW?. With play, music, dance and video installations, HEROES tells the story of a young artist facing the city's art jungle from the perspective of people in their twenties. HEROES is looking into the art scene and its myths, its heroes and abysms, Berlin's past and its present.
HEROES - WHERE ARE WE NOW? invites David Bowie, Berlin and art fans to go on a hero's journey - for one night only.
HEROES - WHERE ARE WE NOW? August 24th, 2013 | Doors: 8:00pm
