David Bowietry in motion

Today March 7 ,1975, David Bowie released Young Americans. It is an excellent album filled with what Bowie dubbed, “plastic soul.”  This album ushered in Bowie’s cocaine fueled Thin White Duke persona.  I’m not sure what the correlation between doing tons of cocaine and liking the saxophone is, but this is Bowie’s most saxophoney period ever.  To celebrate this musical chameleon, let’s watch a video of him performing (lip syncing) “Fame”, a song that featured John Lennon on background vocals, on Soul Train.

I love him.  For fun, let’s also watch this super epic medley he did with Cher on her TV show.
