“The one thing that saved Mick at this point was Dylan,” Mick Ronson’s wife, Suzi, recalls in a terrific feature on her late husband by Garry Mulholland in the new issue of Uncut. She was talking about the shambles Mick’s career had become after he was dumped by David Bowie and his first two solo albums, Slaughter On 10th Avenue and Play Don’t Worry, had both flopped. Things hadn’t really worked out with the Hunter-Ronson Band, either, and you wondered where Mick might go from here when he unexpectedly hove into view as a member of Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue. Who could have seen that coming?You may remember me already telling you about interviewing Mick for what used to be Melody Maker, but here’s a bit of a recap. The first time I met him was in April 1975. The imaginatively named Hunter-Ronson Band, recently formed from the charred ruins of Mott The Hoople, had just played Newcastle City Hall. Back at the local Holiday Inn, we went … [Read more...] about Mick Ronson on David Bowie and Bob Dylan

In another 30 years the next generation might be reporting from Mars! Or at least, that’s what I’d like to see happen. Also cats on mars.August 30, 1984 is when the Space Shuttle Discovery finally took off, taking more than thirty missions, and today the world looks back. CBS writes: When the maiden flight finally took off, at 8:41 a.m. on Aug. 30, Discovery blasted the American space program to new heights. It flew 39 times over the next 27 years – more than any other shuttle vehicle. Many space history firsts occurred on board this 6,870-pound vehicle: it took the first Senator to space in 1985, it took the first Latina to space in 1993 and it flew the oldest man into space, 77-year old John Glenn.Discovery took its last space mission in 2011 and now hangs out at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. Valerie Neal, Curator of the Space History Division at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum told CBS, “Nothing like a space … [Read more...] about On The 30th Anniversary Of The Space Shuttle Discovery, Let’s Talk About Giant Rockets & Life On Mars
Perhaps Jarvis Cocker put it best during an interview with the BBC on Tuesday. Reacting to David Bowie’s just released single “Where Are We Now?,” the reclusive singer’s first in nearly a decade, the Pulp frontman noted that Bowie’s decision to release it on his 66th birthday -- typically a day when one would expect to receive presents and good tidings -- was really a gift to us, his fans.Indeed, the long-awaited but completely unexpected arrival of new music -- a full album, no less, called The Next Day and due out in March -- did not go unappreciated as the melancholy tune made its way across the Internet and around the world. It proved, among other things, that the influential artist (in the truest sense of the word), whose monumental 1972 album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012, is as missed as ever.But is the Bowie of 2013 relevant? It’s a question that could have crossed even … [Read more...] about David Bowie Producer Talks New Music, Health Scare: ‘Album Is Physical Evidence That He’s Fine’ (Q&A)
