“Working with David Bowie” Guitarist Reeves Gabrels Excusive Interview

Ex-Tin Machine axeman tells the unlikely story of how his 12-year collaboration with Bowie began

 

Sonically explorative guitarist Reeves Gabrels is best known for the dozen or so years he partnered David Bowie; first as lead guitarist for The Tin Machine, and later during the 1990s, when Bowie was releasing innovative albums like 1997′s Earthling, one of the first major albums to combine rock with electronica.

 

In part II of Guitar Shop TV’s exclusive interview with the guitarist, who most recently toured with The Cure, Reeves tells GSTV’s Brian Lippey the unlikely story of how he wound up following in the footsteps of Mick Ronson and Earl Slick to become David Bowie’s lead guitarist.
