Rarely, if ever, do you hear about a younger set of musicians regretting meeting a mature legend – or legend in the making. The 1990’s band, Fatboy Slim, have recently declared that they regret meeting the late David Bowie. Why the 90’s band would regret meeting the mystery contained with the Labyrinth movie no one knows until now…
According to Radiox, Fatboy Slim regrets meeting the late David Bowie.
According to Brighton’s The Argus, the DJ took part in an interview with Kevin Bishop at Brighton Beach House where he spoke candidly about everything from his decision to go sober to his past regrets.
Asked if he feels people should meet their heroes, he responded: “Umm. Most of them.”
Quizzed if there’s any one he’d actually wished he’d never met, the Praise You DJ revealed: “It’s David Bowie,” which provoked gasps in the crowd.
The DJ – whose real name is Norman Cook describes the event, which occurred after he’d played at a private show held by Bowie as a warm up for his tour.
“I had had a few drinks, by the way,” he told the crowd, before explaining that he reached out to Bowie at the afterparty and asked him for a cigarette as a fellow “Bromley boy,” since he also has connections to the area.
According to Norman Cook, “One Bromley boy, to another can I have a f*g off you?” According to Cook, the Ziggy Stardust icon looked at him blankly and handed him a cigarette.
When he said: “I’m Fatboy Slim, by the way,” Bowie apparently responded with: “yeah, I know” before continuing his conversation with someone else. Wow. Utter disrespect.
Though the “Right Here, Right Now” star admits that Bowie was “perfectly civil” he admits he was “just deflated” because the icon seemed “unimpressed”.
He added: “Most of the people who you love are lovely really and the bigger they are the lovelier they tend to be, they don’t need to prove their ego or that they’re cleverer than you.
“The big ones are just really nice people.”
