When Bowie met Burroughs
Jon Savage, The Guardian, 9 March 2013
ON 28 FEBRUARY 1974, Rolling Stone magazine published a remarkable encounter between David Bowie and William Burroughs. Entitled "Beat Godfather Meets Glitter Mainman", the event had been hosted in November 1973 by the American journalist Craig Copetas. As published it took the form of a Q&A between the writer and the musician that, in retrospect, was an inspired piece of positioning for both parties.
