“If you were looking through my iPod and checking out the iTunes, you’d find this album and go, ‘What? What’s that doing here?’
“To be honest, I wouldn’t have bought this record if Stevie Ray Vaughan didn’t play on it. That was the main reason right there. Let’s Dance is a decent song. Like with the Talking Heads, I'm a fan of anybody who can create music that makes people want to get on the dance floor and start moving.
“I was curious to check out the way the two different approaches worked together. David Bowie was very kind of ‘80s pop, and Stevie Ray was blues. What would they sound like combined? Sometimes it made sense, and sometimes it felt as if they just threw some blues guitar on top of David Bowie tracks.
“It was probably very innovative for its time. There’s a bit of over-the-top production, but overall it still sounds good. I still hear it come on the radio or when I’m walking around the shopping mall, so obviously it's not too dated or else they wouldn’t play it.”
