INCOMING: The Men Who Sold The World



Holy Holy, featuring golden-eared producer and bassist Tony Visconti (Bowie, T. Rex) and Spider From Mars drummer Woody Woodmansey, will tour North America performing David Bowie’s album The Man Who Sold the World in an exclusive 11-date tour coming to Phoenixville’s Colonial Theatre on Jan. 15, 2016. The show happens just one week after the release of Bowie’s new album, Blackstar, which Visconti produced. In addition to co-writing and producing The Man Who Sold The World, Visconti has produced 11 other Bowie albums over the years, including Young Americans (1975) Heroes (1977), Low (1977), Lodger (1979) and Scary Monsters (1980). Woodmansey played drums on The Man Who Sold the World (1970), Hunky Dory (1971), The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972) and Aladdin Sane (1973). We just got off the phone with Visconti. DISCUSSED: Bowie, hashish, T. Rex, why he hated “Space Oddity” when Bowie first brought it to him and refused to produce it, Tyrannosaurus Rex, The Slider, Bowie at the Tower, George Harrison’s Moog, Kurt Cobain’s cover, making Black Star.
