David Bowie Done With Music?
David Bowie has probably retired from music, according to British author Paul Trynka, who recently wrote a biography on the now-reclusive singer. Trynka, a former editor-in-chief at Mojo magazine, says it's unlikely Bowie will ever return to the studio. "My heart says he'll come back, but my head says he's not likely to", Trynka told Spinner magazine. "I think he would only come back if he thinks he could deliver something that will be seismic. If you pop back into the stage, it's got to be something that has a big explosion and lots of flashes. It would be a bit of a miracle if he comes back, but miracles do happen." Trynka's book, "David Bowie: Starman", reveals a little-known rock fact: that Bowie was temporarily a member of The Small Faces, a gig which the author feels may have had a life-changing effect on the singer and his future direction. "That in itself showed what a genius he had for meeting the right kind of people, making friends and influencing people", Trynker said. "This was one of the biggest '60s bands. But he wasn't good enough, he was too derivative, and they threw him out of the band. That alone shines a new light on how he became the person he was." Thanks for the report to Peter Hodgson, Gibson.com.
