This is the fourth part of The David Bowie Story, a BBC documentary series about the life and times of one of the greatest and most influential artists in popular music. Listen to the previous parts here: Part 1: The Apprenticeship, Part 2: One Man Against the World, Part 3: Fame.
With the release of Station to Station in 1976, Bowie introduces yet another persona: the Thin White Duke. But things aren’t going well to say the least. Drugs are taking him over the edge and he is starting to worry for his life. He and his friend Iggy Pop – who’s not doing great either – thus decide to leave Hollywood’s insanity and clean up their act in Berlin.
After producing an album for Iggy, he encounters producer Brian Eno. Eno takes Bowie to new ground and their collaboration will end up producing one of Bowie’s most acclaimed and influential pieces: Low, the first album of the so-called “Berlin Trilogy”. He finally sees the end of the tunnel.
