David Bowie - the Playboy Interview, 1976
In which the Thin White Duke sits down for a few minutes with Cameron Crowe
and comes clean about sex, drugs, politics, ego, James Dean, madness and his fondness for good ole Adolph Hitler.
I'd love to enter politics. I will one day. I'd adore to be Prime Minister. And, yes, I believe very strongly in fascism. The only way we can speed up the sort of liberalism that's hanging foul in the air at the moment of a right-wing, totally dictatorial tyranny and get it over as fast as possible. People have always responded with greater efficiency under a regimental leadership. A liberal wastes time saying, "Well, now, what ideas have you got?" Show them what to do, for God's sake. If you don't, nothing will get done. I can't stand people just hanging about. Television is the most fascist, too. Adolf Hitler was one of the first rock stars.
