According to a New Zealand news wire, Mr. Bowie’s told New York Magazine he’s decided to take a break from writing and performing music. And who is to blame? Says Sailor, “I’m fed up with the industry and I’ve been fed up for quite some time. I’m taking a year off, no touring, no albums.”
That’s right, the same folks that brought you the RIAA lawsuits and American Idol, haved bummed our rock hero into silence. One would figure a performer of his financial success wouldn’t need to deal with the music industry at all if he chose not to, however, given his interest in upcoming acts, the frustration is understandable.
As for how he’s spending his time, “I go for a walk every morning, and I watch a ton of movies. One day, I watched three Woody Allen movies in a row.” I’m not sure I buy the image of the Thin White Couch Potato. But if anyone’s earned the right to sit back, relax and just enjoy his life and his family, it’s this one.
