Whenever you are friends with Joe Stevens, you are always one mutation away from stardom. Whether Joe Strummer, Johhny Rotten, Chrissie Hynde, Paul McCartney or, as in this case, David Bowie, he saw, he snapped, he conquered. When I worked with Joe back in the 80s, the man was one of the great talkers; a wonderful storyteller with all the snap crackle and pop of his Irish heritage.
Joe has what you’d call a winning personality and he used it to relax and entice his rock star muses for the likes of NME, The Face, New York Rocker… really heavy on the scene from the mid-1960s to the late 1980s.
Today, Joe lives in Dover, New Hampshire and if you go to Dover New Hampshire on July 25th you’ll have the opportunity to meet him at Sonny’s Tavern where he will repsent a digital slide show of pictures taken of David Bowie fro the 70s thru the 80s,
Joe has a Mac Book and these pictures are excerpted from the book. Joe will discuss “the pictures, the tours, the decadence…” as well as the music itself. If it was in the New York City area I’d certainly be there and if you are somewhere in the Dover area you haven’t lived till you’ve enjoyed the timing of Joe Stevens the storyteller. He once had me rolling on the floor with tears talking about Paul McCartney throwing him off the tour bus for asking about a Beatles reunion in what, 1971? 1972?
