Carlos Alomar: Hard Driving Anchor Man For The David Bowie Show

Gene Santoro, Guitar World, January 1984

IMAGINE THE fairy-tale scene this way, since this is how it actually happened: It is 1973, the setting is RCA's recording studios in New York and a Puerto Rican session guitarist with impressive credentials named Carlos Alomar is approached by RCA staffer Tony Sylvester. Sylvester tells Alomar that RCA has somebody coming over from England to produce a song called, 'Can You Hear Me?'
