17 May 2019

The late great artistic genius DAVID BOWIE released his 13th album LODGER today
40 years ago, on 17 May 1979. The third LP of the so-called Berlin Trilogy (the other two
being Low & Heroes), although it was recorded in Switzerland and New York City with the well-known tandem Brian Eno / Tony Visconti.

Fun facts to know: one of Oasis biggest moments, their 1996 No 1 hit ‘Don’t Look Back
In Anger
