David Bowie - Thin White Duke

More 70's/80's madness. This time Bowie's cocaine addicted 'Thin White Duke' period, during which he was said to have spent up to 3 days awake, painting, reading and recording at a time. Needless to say once he had cleaned up he had practically no memory of this time, roughly around the recording of Station to Station in 1976. He went to Berlin shortly after where he recorded Low, in an attempt to get his act together. Iggie Pop joined him in a similar practice.
