David Bowie would’ve turned 73 today.  He called his song: “Let’s Dance” “a great blues song.” With its Stevie Ray Vaughan guitar solo, its no wonder the late David Bowie described “Let’s Dance” the way he did in this interview done shortly after he’d played a stripped-down version of it at Neil Young’s 1996 Bridge School Benefit:

 

“A really good blues song — that did me in. [Laughs] Funnily enough we did that at the Neil Young show, “Let’s Dance,” as a city blues, with bottle caps on the bottom of me shoes and used that as the rhythm source, like the old blues guys used to play up in Chicago. And, uh, it sounded really cool as a blues. It’s a great blues song.”
