First Video Off My New Album. The Song Is David Bowie’s “Quicksand.”

This an acoustic version of David Bowie’s masterpiece, “Quicksand,” from his 1971 album, “Hunky Dory.”

Had an album release party today at the lovely home of Maia Panos, a wonderful gathering of friends. The album came out on Friday. We premiered the video, the first one for the album, at the party today. It is now live on YouTube, etc.
This an acoustic version of David Bowie’s masterpiece, “Quicksand,” from his 1971 album, “Hunky Dory.” The inspiration for the video was Heinrich Boll’s 1963 novel, “The Clown.” The novel follows, in a series of flashbacks and ruminations, the downfall of the protagonist, Hans Schnier, once an A-list entertainer who toured Europe and performed at the finest concert hall and stayed in the best hotels. He has lost the only woman he ever loved to his stubborn refusal to sign an agreement to raise their future children in the Catholic faith. Additionally, his alcoholism has progressed into the realm of hopeless variety, with the concomitant spirtitual and emotional collapse. In the last scene of the book, he is performing on the sidewalk outside a train station, his make-up smeared and cracked, with tears streaming down his face. Quite a book, beautifully written, and I highly recommend it.
