They came from his soul
Ken Scott co-produced the seminal albums Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust with David Bowie. He also worked with The Beatles as their sound engineer on Magical Mystery Tour and the White Album.
"There is only one artist I have worked with who could do lead vocals on the first take almost every time. With David [Bowie], it was always there; it was amazing. I think that’s one of the reasons we’re still talking about these albums after all this time. They’re real, they’re human and they come from his soul.”
