This Funzing Experience:

David Bowie is undoubtedly one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. This is a rare talk by GQ Magazine's editor-in-chief, Dylan Jones, who personally interviewed Bowie multiple times and who has written the best-selling book "David Bowie, A Life".

Drawn from a series of conversations between David Bowie and Dylan Jones across three decades, the talk will reveal an intimate portrait of Bowie's remarkable rise to stardom and one of the most fascinating lives of our time.

Profoundly shaped by his relationship with his schizophrenic half-brother Terry, Bowie was a man of intense relationships that often came to abrupt ends. He was a social creature, equally comfortable partying with John Lennon and dining with Frank Sinatra, and in Dylan Jones's telling - by turns insightful and salacious - we see as intimate a portrait as could possibly be drawn.

Including illuminating, never-before-seen material from Bowie himself, drawn from a series of Jones’s interviews with him across three decades, DAVID BOWIE is an epic, unforgettable cocktail-party conversation about a man whose enigmatic shapeshifting and irrepressible creativity produced one of the most sprawling, fascinating lives of our time.

Venue: International Students House, Marylebone

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
