  • Hey Joey,
    I’ve recently been to the Bowie exhibition in Holland and I also saw it when it was in London. I’d just like to say that the SNL Man Who Sold The World clip is on continuous rotation in one of the displays. It was my favourite part of the show. I especially love your’s and Klaus’ added “Not even you…” bit of backing vocals. Hope you get added to the show.
