David Bowie: Madison Square Garden, NYC

Paul Rambali, New Musical Express, 20 May 1978

IT WOULD make a great parlour game were some enterprising company to formalize rules. A game this writer has been known to play over the years, often avidly, sometimes disinterestedly, but always his curiosity keeps him coming back for more. It used to be called "What will David Bowie do next?" Then it became "Guess who David Bowie is now?" But nowadays it’s best known as, "Will the real David Bowie please stand up?"

Total word count of piece: 1922
