BP Fallon being interviewed about David Bowie on UTV News by Paul Colgan
Last Monday seems like a year ago now, a dream. It still feels like a dream. David Bowie is dead.
On Monday, a shocked and saddened BP Fallon spoke to Neil Delamere on Today FM, to Joe Duffy on RTE Radio 1’s ‘Liveline’ and was interviewed on UTV television news. BP then joined Paul McLoone in the Today FM studio for Paul’s David Bowie tribute show.

The Band Portrait: Marketing ‘Perception’

Says the SXSW site: “This year marks the 39th anniversary of the release of the Led Zeppelin album ‘Physical Graffiti’ – BP took some of the photographs of the band on the album cover and is celebrating by playing with his band at SXSW 2014 (Editors note: The Ghost Wolves do the honours) and by being on this superb panel.
“Every picture tells a story and sometimes these celebrated photographers do too. Let it rock!”

Lou Reed – Rock And Roll Heart – amazing documentary 1998 (75 mins)
Rock And Roll Heart traces Lou Reed’s career from before the formation of the Velvet Underground to rock icon status to his more recent artistic endeavors. Includes rare and vintage footage plus interviews with David Bowie, John Cale, Maureen Tucker, Patti Smith, Thurston Moore, David Byrne, Jim Carroll, Dave Stewart and Philip Glass – and even Holly Woodlawn and ‘Little’ Joe Dallesandro, the drag queen and the street hustler immortalized by Reed in ‘Walk on the Wild Side’. A superb documentary – and the only one – about this hugely influential and uncompromising American artist. Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders for American Masters.
God bless you, Lou. And Nico and Sterling Morrison and Andy Warhol, with love & gratitude x
Artist Of The Always Now, the magnificent Maser, has created a glorious poster for the gig “for my buddy BP Fallon”. Thank you brother.
Maser painted the stunning portrait of BP Fallon that adorns the outside wall of The Button Factory in Curve Street in Temple Bar in Dublin.

In yesterday’s Star, Shilpa Ganatra asked our Mr Fallon “How does it feel to be the subject of graffiti artist Maser’s giant mural on Curved Street?”
Said BP “It’s probably the greatest honour I’ve ever received. I work outside of the mainstream and it seems fitting that a street artist – however renowned and respected Maser is, and he is – should give me my medal. I thank Maser and also Dublin Contemporary 2011, of which the portrait is a part. I must confess that maybe I’ve been high before – but never in a thirty foot high portrait on the side of a wall. It’s humbling”.
