Bowie Hangs With Chicago Fans

On Thursday night, about 70 lucky Chicagoans were treated to an
opportunity of a lifetime — they got to hang out with David Bowie.

Chicago radio station WXRT hosted the event at
Chicago Trax recording studio. Oriental rugs were
tossed on the floor, candles ignited and a bohemian atmosphere
created for about 45 minutes while DJ Frank E. Lee
interviewed Bowie and his longtime guitarist Reeves
Gabrels. Bowie, casually dressed in black jeans and an
aqua-colored sweater, spent the majority of the time joking and
chatting it up with the crowd before breaking into a three-song set
consisting of “Always Crashing The Same Car,” a country/western
version of “Scary Monsters” and “I Can’t Read,” a Tin
Machine tune.

After the show, one longtime Bowie admirer actually surprised
the artist when he revealed he owned bootlegs back from when Bowie
was still referred to as David Jones. Another fan told
JAMTV that although Bowie was tired from his current tour, he was charming and down to earth. To sum up the evening, she said, “There was really just a happy,
cool vibe.”
