Episode 6: Locker Room in Heaven

On Side A we talk about the incomparable David Bowie…. In keeping with our Cover Story theme, we will be discussing Bowie’s “Sound and Vision” which was recorded on the album “Low” in 1977 which was the first of David Bowie’s Berlin trilogy – one of the most interesting times in Bowie’s life.

And on Side B: “Dream Baby Dream” is one of my favorite Bruce songs of all time and is from his 2014 Album High Hopes. It also happens to be a really brilliant cover of the 1979 song by Suicide. We are gonna dive deep into the punk scene in New York City which had a huge impact on Bruce. I love when worlds collide and on Side B, we have some world collisions happening between Bruce & Tom from Rage Against the Machine. For those that don’t know, Tom Morello took over the Steve Van Zandt’s guitar spot when he took a hiatus from the E Street Band and he and Bruce just hit it off. Tom inspired Bruce to add some brilliant cover songs to his live show repertoires which are featured on the High Hopes album. Nothing makes me happier than watching clips of Bruce and Morello rocking out on stage together. I love them both so much. But - more on that later on…
