John Kumnick is a fantastic bass player who is also our neighbor here in Southern Maine. Listen here as he tells his incredible story of what is was like performing with David Bowie on the Tonight Show in the early Eighties.
You most likely knew that David Bowie had a connection to Maine through contributing to Rustic Overtones' album, Viva Nueva. There's another Portland area musician who once worked the 'Starman' on a legendary late night TV show. When news of Bowie's passing spread on Monday, we decided to reach out to the other local artist who was blessed to play music with him.
