David Bowie Takes Break From Touring
[lastfm]David Bowie [/lastfm]says he does not plan on going on tour any time soon.
After surviving a heart attack in 2004 and producing new records Heathen and Reality in 2002 and 2003, the “Ziggy Stardust” star has decided to take a break from the fast-paced life of the road.
“I’m not thinking of touring,” he said in a New York Times profile of his supermodel wife, Iman. “I’m comfortable.”
Bowie, who is ranked as the number 39 artist among Rolling Stone‘s 100 Greatest Rock Artists of All Time, has not released any new material in seven years.
Bowie’s son Duncan Jones has made a name for himself, though, while his father has taken it easy. Duncan rose to prominence as one of the U.K.’s top independent film directors with his 2009 release Moon. The film won best work by new director at the 2010 British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards.
