A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE (London Brixton Academy, 08/01/17)

It's not an easy job to do justice to one of the greatest musical artists in human history, and in fairness to Mike Garson and his coterie of Bowie band alumni and guest stars, they gave it a damn good shot. But sadly poor sound, under-rehearsed numbers and too many bland vocalists overshadowed its genuinely great moments - Gaby Moreno's powerhouse "Five Years", a swaggering performance of "Diamond Dogs" and Angelo Moore's deliciously eccentric takes on "Moonage Daydream" and "Ashes to Ashes".
