When I first met Luther Vandross, I went down to Philadelphia. David Bowie invited me down...

Something wrong with the clip?

Quote

Bruce Springsteen: When I first met Luther Vandross, I went down to Philadelphia. David Bowie invited me down in 1973 - to hear, he was recording the "Young Americans". And I had one record out and he'd cut a couple of my songs. And, so, it was tremendously exciting. I took the bus to Philadelphia. And I went into the studio and I met David and I met the band - and Luther Vandross was one of the backup singers in David Bowie's Young American's band... Well, you know, it was just fabulous, you know. And it was David Bowie's soul record, in that sense. And he called on those voices that were rooted in the church to bring that in. Cause they bring a *world* with them. A *world* with them.
