Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I met David Bowie while I was a roadie for him, although I use the word roadie loosely. A friend of mine was his tour manager, and I tagged along and helped paint things for the set and fetched wood from the yard. I was more of a gofer. David was wonderful to be around, like someone from Mars.

Trivia:

In 1972 he was a member of David Bowie's road crew on the UK tour of Bowie's Ziggy Stardust UK tour. See more »
