Intr-un interviu acordat revistei NME, Mick “Woody” Woodmansey, fostul tobosar al lui David Bowie si Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars a marturisit ca a fost contactat de catre echipa celebrei cantarete Lady Gaga pentru a colabora cu ea la un tribut David Bowie destinat galei Grammy Awards de anul acesta. Woodmansey a respins categoric propunerea considerand ca nu-l reprezinta pe David Bowie .
“We were actually asked to do that, we were on tour at the time, they asked Tony and myself would we do it, and we looked at it and it was going to be like 14 or 15 songs in the space of four minutes, and we just went ‘no, f**k off”, that’s stupid, that’s not going to represent anything good about him. I haven’t seen many things that do represent it properly. It’s nice that many want to do that, it’s a great thing, but quality wise, there hasn’t been many.
It was just, ‘why are you doing it?’ If there’s a genuine heartfelt thing that you wanna do out of respect, then you’d probably pull it off, but if there’s any other reason, it just gets tacky, and obviously you can’t stop that, they have a right to do it as they want to do it, but it doesn’t help a lot, it doesn’t do a lot.”, a marturisit Woodmansey pentru NME
Nici Duncan Jones, fiul regretatului artist, nu a fost de acord cu ce s-a intamplat la Grammy Awards. Imediat dupa eveniment, acesta a postat pe twitter urmatorul mesaj:
“Overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused.’ Damn it! What IS that word?!”
