David Bowie Unlikley To Record Or Tour Again, Claims Biographer

davidbowiePaul Trynka, the author of new David Bowie biography Starman, has admitted he finds it unlikely the legendary songwriter will return to recording and touring duties, which were scaled down dramatically after a major health scare in 2004.

While conducting an interview with Spinner, Trynka said while he hopes Bowie might return to touring and recording new material once again, he finds it hard to see that scenario occurring.

“My heart says he’ll come back. But my head says he’s likely not to,” he said. “I think he would only come back if he thinks he could deliver something that will be seismic.”

“If you pop back into the stage, it’s got to be something that has a big explosion and lots of flashes. It would be a bit of a miracle if he comes back, but miracles do happen.”

During Bowie’s last major world tour in 2004, he was admitted to hospital after experiencing chest pains, and was diagnosed as having suffered a minor heart attack. In the intervening years, he has restricted himself to just a handful of live appearances, while the 2003 album ‘Reality‘ remains his last studio release.
