'Tin Machine' (1989)
The failure of Never Let Me Down caused Bowie to re-evaluate his career. He decided to form a band called Tin Machine with his 1970s collaborators Hunt and Tony Sales, and support it with a club tour. It was an effort to escape the expectations that came with being David Bowie. The effort polarized fans and critics, and Bowie ended the band after another effort in 1991.
