On the last leg of the 1976 “Station to Station” European tour, Photographer Andrew Kent arrived at David’s Paris hotel to find the performer still in bed.
David slipped on a dressing gown and hopped back in bed for this unforgettable shot. Jimmy Osterberg (aka Iggy Pop) was also in the room.
“These were the best couple of hours I’ve ever had in photography. I was so fortunate to be there,” says the photographer.
“David preferred just about any means of travel other than flying,” says photographer Andrew Kent.
“Bowie’s Back!” declared the headlines, playing off the distinctive angle of Andrew Kent’s famous shot to mark the performer’s return to London for the kickoff of Bowie’s ’76 European tour.
“Everybody identifies this shot with David,” Andrew says. Taken during a performance at Wembley Auditorium, it is one of the photographer’s favorites. It was featured on the cover of NME magazine.
David shows his pleasure at finally having arrived in Moscow after a long train trip from Switzerland in the spring of ’76.
