And not's let forget that Bowie himself played all the guitars on the 'Diamond Dogs' album......


Yeah- good call for all!

There's great footage around of Adrian Belew playing with Bowie circa 1978 in Bremen -
I also like that 12" single called "Big Electric Cat" - the way he used to bend the neck (literally!) of that battered stratocaster he had was great.

Reeves Gabrels did a great solo on a version of "Heroes" on the Jools Holland Later show one time.

I've always thought that Bowie as a 'multi-instrumentalist' was always 'unsung' too.
