David Bowie Re-Created His ‘Heroes’ Album Cover With A Daft Punk Helmet
David Bowie re-created his iconic “Heroes” album cover, this time wearing Daft Punk garb. It was all part of his tribute to Columbia Records US chairman Rob Stringer, who was honored with the Strat Award at London’s Music Week Awards Thursday (April 24). This isn’t the first time Bowie has repurposed that pose — previously he tweaked the cover for his The Next Day artwork.
In an accompanying Facebook post, the Thin White Duke recounted the time Stringer held a meeting while dressed as one of the French Robots (surely one of those rare moments Bowie was the more conservatively dressed person in a room), as an example of how far Stringer goes for his artists. There are probably only a couple dozen people who actually care about this story, but the point is, it gave us David Bowie as Daft Punk, so just enjoy it.
