Networking Bowie style

By Claire Scaramanga, 14th September 2019

Last week I attended a great networking event in the beautiful penthouse suite at the Four Seasons in Trinity Square.

The guest speaker was Denis O’Regan, rock photographer, who has shot all the greats in his time, including a year spent with David Bowie on the Serious Moonlight Tour.

As a teenager, I was thrilled to get hold of tickets for the NEC show on the tour, so put Denis’ book of the photos he took on the tour on my 2018 Christmas list. It’s a beautiful book and a must for any Bowie fan.

Denis took us through his career and how through determination and persistence he got bands to agree to have him on tour. His slideshow had pics of all my music heroes – Bowie of course, Thin Lizzy, Queen, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, the Stones. I think all of us there were in heaven!

And finally, Denis very kindly signed my Bowie book, which I had taken up to the event. I think both he and I were pleased with that!
