David Bowie, Paris 1976
“Presenting David…” Well, you know who we mean. The performer poses in Paris in May 1976, in front of the concert poster for the last leg of the European “Station to Station” tour. Andrew Kent had met Bowie the year before the tour through a fluke. Noted rock’n roll writer and close friend Cameron Crowe was in LA on assignment for Rolling Stone covering the recording of “Station to Station.” Not having a driver’s license, he enlisted buddy Andrew at 2 am one morning to chauffeur him to meet David at Bowie’s house in Bel Air. “The three of us stayed up talking all night, and David and I became good friends,” Andrew says. In the 70’s Andrew spent a lot of time in Europe, shooting performances by Iggy Pop, The Eagles and other bands, and tending to his new music photography business, “selling slides out of a backpack. ” His entourage included Crowe and fellow photographer Barry Levine.
