DamonJOfficial: I’m convinced that someone (Phil? Tony Visconti?) made the decision at some point to slow the tape speed a little to make it sound “heavier” or bigger. When I was prepping songs when I first joined Lizzy I had a separate guitar tuned to “Black Rose tuning”

Jigsaw_Sequence: If you had the chance to work with any Producer currently living, who would you choose (you can pick 3): For me: Trevor Horn Midge Ure Tony Visconti If Conny Plank was still alive, then he would be in the three.

NeOhioDj: Marc Bolan was an original. Mr. Tony Visconti is brilliant as well. The most beautifully produced track. Loving his book.

Honors_Zombie: They had the expansiveness of early electronic music but Josh Garza's drums tied them explicitly to a classic rock tradition. The guitars said Klaatu or Pink Floyd or Magazine. The keys built worlds. Tony Visconti answered the phone when they called him to collaborate

NicholasPegg: Of all the gifted artists who worked with David Bowie over the years, few can match the contribution of Tony Visconti, David’s friend and colleague from the moment they met in 1967, through Berlin and Scary Monsters to Heathen and Blackstar. Tony will be joining us in New York!

CultrHack: Always wondered how they did it. Now we have more of a clue. I guess co-producer Tony Visconti was on a cig break. Or was he with his girlfriend whose kiss with him at the Berlin Wall helped inspire Bowie to write the song "Heroes"?

tropicalsteve: Also the soundtrack overseen by Tony Visconti is loud, immersive and probably the best Bowie has ever sounded next to the actual live performances. It feels a bit like “Beatles Love” the way that songs ebb and flow into one another seamlessly.

DarrellEpp: TONY VISCONTI: Marc Bolan's music is always in my head, and till this day I am asked to work with it in various forms. I remember our conversations, our ups and downs, our devotion to 'getting it right' in recording sessions and all the jokes we made. I miss you Marc.

DarrellEpp: Tony Visconti on Marc Bolan: As colleagues we recorded 160 songs together. As friends we hung out a lot. He was such a part of my life, like family.I am reminded daily of our loss.
