Peter Frampton, Todd Rundgren and More Cover David Bowie
Howard Stern's Howard 101 channel on SiriusXM will broadcast a special honoring the music of David Bowie on Feb. 9. The program will feature 25 artists, including Peter Frampton, Todd Rundgren and Daryl Hall performing Bowie songs recorded specifically for the show.
"When I got into rock 'n' roll music, one of the artists that I first really got into was David Bowie," Stern said in a statement (via Rolling Stone). "He was always evolving, he was always on top of things, he was just a great musician and a great songwriter and a great singer. I want to make sure that people remember David Bowie."
Frampton, who credited schoolmate Bowie with reviving his career in the '80s, recorded a live version of "Rebel Rebel" (which you can hear above), while Rundgren covered "Life on Mars?" Daryl Hall gives us "Fame" (which is below) and Billy Corgan will close it out with "Space Oddity."
The show isn't just comprised of classic rockers. Greta Van Fleet, one of the hottest new rock bands at the moment, broke out "The Jean Genie," while Corey Taylor covered "Fashion" and Lisa Loeb sang "All the Young Dudes" (which you can also hear below), a song Bowie gave to Mott the Hoople.
You can see the full list of artists and songs below and read more about the program at Stern's website.
Kristeen Young's take on "Moonage Daydream" was co-produced by Bowie's longtime engineer and co-producer Tony Visconti, who noted, "David Bowie’s lasting influence on music, past, present and future is absolutely phenomenal. He will be played a hundred years from now. I'm glad we can share these fantastic interpretations of his songs. The people who rose to the occasion for the Howard Stern tribute did an amazing job."
