There was a documentary on the BBC over the weekend, David Bowie; The Last Five Years, detailing his cardiac incident on the Reality tour, his work on The Next Day, Lazarus and Blackstar, and of course his illness and death- although not much mention was made of that due to his being so secretive, despite mentioning that he was ill, possibly terminally, to the musicians on Blackstar, and had them swear secrecy until after he'd gone. Interestingly enough, i discovered that the drums on Blackstar and Sue [Or In A Season Of Crime] weren't samples or a drum machine, but were actually performed by a musician who plays with a modern jazz outfit that specialises in that sort of playing style. Hearing them playing the opening bars to Blackstar and watching them doing it was utterly fascinating.
