Gig Description

Pianist Mike Garson was David Bowie’s most frequent musician, on record and onstage throughout Bowie’s life. They played over a thousand shows together between 1972 and 2004, and Garson is featured on over 20 of Bowie’s albums. Bowie’s Piano Man is the first-ever biography of Mike Garson, written by Clifford Slapper, a fellow pianist who also played for Bowie, working closely with him on his last-ever television appearance. The book explores the special relationship between Garson and Bowie, beginning with the extraordinary story of how Garson went overnight from playing in tiny jazz clubs to touring the world on arena rock tours with Bowie after one short phone call and audition. Clifford Slapper’s excellent book, first published in 2015, has now been revised and extended, taking in the shockwaves we all felt when Bowie suddenly died in January 2016. Author Julie Hamill (15 Minutes With You, Frank) and Dublin Castle DJ and programmer Tony Gleed will interview Clifford who will also be poised at the piano to give us wonderful musical illustrations to accompany the exploration of the text. Plus Bowie thru Garson related DJ sets topping and tailing the event.
