Laurence Bolwell has been dressing as David Bowie and singing his songs on stage for 18 years. One Monday morning, early in January, he hears the news that his idol has died. That Friday night, he is due on stage with his act in a theatre in Carmarthen. Grace Dent tells the story of Laurence’s week, and finds out what it’s like to be a tribute artist the day your hero dies.

Simon is away, so Ben welcomes good friend of the show Mr Tom Coates back into the Secret Alley for a full David Bowie remembrance, tribute, celebration show. After a week to get used to the idea, we’ll be digging a little deeper into what made the man just that good. Defining tracks, deep cuts, incredible cover versions, and major inspirations abound.
A full show of Bowie, covers, collaborations, and chatter.
We’ve heard a lot of Bowie this week, hopefully we’ll play something you haven’t.— Eclectic Kettle (@BFFKettle) January 20, 2016
