Visconti on Bowie's new LP

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I was a little scared after he had his heart condition. He had a little scare himself. I didn't speak to him for a year after that. He was just recovering and just not talking to anybody. But I was one of the first people he emailed afterwards and we were steadily in contact since then… All these rumors started going around about his health. Every time I had lunch with him, or coffee with him, I'm looking at him and my dear old friend was looking really good. But music didn't interest him until two years ago; that's when he made the call. He said, ‘How would you like to make some demos?’ And I was a little shocked, quite honestly; it was just so casual. It was just the next topic in the discussion.” —Tony Visconti, producer of David Bowie’s The Next Day, on the project’s genesis, in Rolling Stone. (1/16a)
