“Well ‘Heroes’ was written a couple of weeks before Fripp came down. We recorded the backing track, and it’s one of the few times that David actually played piano live. Eno was in the control room with me. We really didn’t know what we had. There were no lyrics yet. It was not called ‘Heroes.’ It wasn’t called anything.”
NB: This just goes to show why Robert Fripp is my all time favourite guitarist and why the collaboration of Bowie and Eno is pure genius.
