David Bowie and Friends on New Album
The aptly-titled Birthday Celebration – Live in NYC 1997, features tracks from a show staged at Madison Square Garden on January 9, 1997, to commemorate Bowie's 50th birthday (which actually occurred the previous day).
Joining in the musical festivities were such Bowie acolytes as Sonic Youth, Robert Smith and Dave Grohl, as well as Bowie's pal and major influence, Lou Reed. Included in the set list were such Bowie classics as "Space Oddity," "Moonage Daydream" and "All the Young Dudes," as well as then-new songs like "The Hearts Filthy Lesson" and "Little Wonder." more on this story
