Through the (Stained) Looking Glass: David Bowie & the Berlin Trilogy

Robert Dean Lurie, Blurt, 11 July 2018

One year ago, David Bowie passed away, much to the surprise and sorrow of the music world. To mark the anniversary of his death, we will celebrate his acclaimed, visionary German recording trifecta of the late '70s. Special narrative cameos: Brian Eno and Robert Fripp (both pictured above, with Bowie), Tony Visconti, Philip Glass, Marianne Faithfull, and Scott Walker.

Total word count of piece: 1890
