Earl Slick : “Will David Bowie come back? I don’t know.” “Did we have fun? Yes”

Guitarist Earl Slick has talked about the rumoured comeback of Starman David Bowie.
“We stay in touch, but on a casual basis. ‘Cause he doesn’t seem to have any plans for going out at the moment. But that could change tomorrow. It’s always been like that, for years it’s been like that. He hasn’t said one way or the other and you know I don’t know. Feel free to e-mail me and tell me when we’re going out.”

He also talked about his past work with tne Thin White Duke. Including “Young americans”. “It wasn’t done all at once we did some of it in New York, we did some of it in Philly. Wd did it in-between tour dates. I don’t remember a lot of it. Station to Station we did it all in one go. That I remember we were at Cherokee studios and we went in and it took us eight weeks to make the record and in those days that was considered like a marathon people would usually make records in three or four weeks. The way Bowie worked he had shells of songs and what David does, any band I’ve ever been in with David he’s always picked people that he can rely on to come up with their own thing. He wants you to bring to the table what it is you do best. And it’s his philosophy: let the guy do what he does. That’s why we’ve always had fun doing tours I don’t take instruction or direction very well so we get along fine in that area. A lot of it was done on the spur of the moment, the arrangements and everything.
