SCARY MONSTERS was, in my humble opinion (IMHO to you under 30s), the last truly great Bowie album. In celebration of that fantastic album I thought I would post some photos of Bowie from the official album photo shoot. They are by Brian Duffy. And they almost didn’t happen. The problem was Duffy had already retired by the time SCARY MONSTERS was recorded. But Bowie insisted. And what Bowie wants. Bowie gets.
