Bowie And The Saucers

From Daniel Transit
Attached are 2 stills of David Bowie demonstrating the vertical take-off of a (flying) "saucer" on Dick Cavett's Wide World Of Entertainment TV Show, December 1974. He had previously been asked why he wouldn't fly, and in response, described and acted out the take-off of a conventional aircraft. The implication he then proceeded to give was that he much preferred the way that a "saucer" takes off.
But what knowledge or experience did he base this comparison upon?
The as yet unexplained televisual occurrence is mentioned in passing on page 89 of Michael Luckman's book 'Alien Rock,' published last month.

Did 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' Ever Leave It?

Predominate in Bowie's early years was the glam-rock alien "Ziggy Stardust" stage personna, and later his role as Thomas Jerome Newton in the cult classic "The Man Who Fell To Earth," about an alien being wearing a 'human suit' while stranded on Earth, having come from a planet devoid of and in need of water -- he becomes addicted to vodka (water with a kick) and slowly deteriorates into a half-baked supergenius who is eventually imprisoned by the military industrial complex and tapped for his advanced intelligence, which comes in dribs and drabs through his alcoholic haze, feeding the corporate demands of the 20th century. He eventually records a rock album in hopes that his message will be beamed into space and eventually heard by "home."

A Cream Encounter Of The Third Kind
"Have you got any metal in your body" asked the flying saucer man.
"Yeah, I've got one pin," said David Bowie.
Well, it turned out David was in luck then. If he went to a little town in Missouri at a certain time, he would be able to see in a seemingly empty field a fully equipped flying saucer repair shop at work.
It was one of those fascinating things you learn at a Bowie soiree. This evening the gathering was rather intimate. There was Corinne, David's charming personal secretary, who ducked out early due to exhaustion (although another participant gossiped that she had someone interesting waiting for her in her hotel room)...."I used to work for two guys who put out a UFO magazine in England," he told the flying saucer man. "About six years ago. And I made sightings six, seven times a night for about a year when I was in the observatory. We had regular cruises that came over. We knew the 6.15 was coming in and would meet up with another one. And they would be stationary for about half an hour, and then after verifying what they'd been doing that day, they'd shoot off."
"But I mean, it's what you do with the information. We never used to tell anybody. It was beautifully dissipated when it got to the media. Media control is still based in the main on cultural manipulation. It's just so easy to do. When you set up one set of objectives toward the public and you've given them a certain definition for each code word, you hit them with the various code words and they're not going to believe anything if you don't want them to..." ( excerpt/ Cream Magazine/ Bruno Stein/ February 1975 )

Major Tom Theorizes

When I first tuned in I had no idea it was him. The interviewer asked him about what he thought UFO's might be, and he said something like (paraphrased), "A friend and I were travelling in the english countryside when we both noticed a strange object hovering above a field. From then on I have come to take this phenomona seriously. I believe that what I saw was not the an object, but a projection of my own mind trying to make sense of this quantum topological doorway into dimensions beyond our own. It's as if our dimension is but one among an infinite number of others."
I was amazed at his use of language, and then even more suprised to disocver it was David Bowie who was speaking. ( From, excerpt from "The Laughing Gnostic: David Bowie and the Occult" by Peter R Koenig )
