Mike Garson On The David Bowie Alumni Tour – It’s A Labor Of Love And I Have To Do It!

“Life on Mars” I must have played over 200 times with David, and every time I played it, I played it a little differently. The band plays the parts as everyone knows from the records. I have always been known as the “loose cannon,” and David gave me the freedom to create new stuff and improvise, provided I played the parts where they were necessary for the production and endings. From the audience’s viewpoint, the band sounds like the records, and I’m the whipped cream on the cake keeping things fresh.
