"My version of My Way"

My way was released 2 years before Life On Mars

Bowie: 'I was stuck with a partially written musical. And I converted it into something more Borroughsian. That was when I really started playing around with cut-up techniques, and that really opened up a whole new avenue of songwriting to me, a whole approach creating different atmospheres. Because that was the crux of what rock was to me. It wasn't so much what rock said. It was just the attitude and the atmosphere that it created. I was trying to define my version of rock-personally, in the way that I felt it, as a more stage oriented, theatrical kind of artist'. http://privat.ub.uib.no/bubsy/win2.htm

Bowie: Um…let me see…well, it's an artist from Belgium called Guy Peellaert, who did a book called "Rock Dreams"…that I nicked, well, I didn't nick the book, but I saw the book at Mick Jagger's house and I nicked the idea of doing a cover.

Cavett: What does nick mean?

Bowie: Oh…stole.
