David Bowie: 'I'm Not Ashamed Of Wearing Dresses...But Unfortunately It's Detracted From The Fact That I'm Also A Songwriter'

Danny Holloway, New Musical Express, 29 January 1972

ON THE day I was to meet David Bowie at his home in Beckenham, Kent, I really didn't know what to expect. I had heard and seen very little of him recently. The last time I saw him perform was at London's Roundhouse over a year and a half ago when he showed up unannounced, wearing a gold outfit and curled hair. At the time his music sounded too busy and I couldn't pick up on it.
