David Bowie calls musical announcement ‘absolute toss’

Legendary singer dismisses news that a Bowie musical is on the cards

David Bowie has dismissed the news that a stage musical version of his film, ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’, is set to be produced as “absolute toss”.

The singer said that claims that permission for his songs to be used had been granted not true.

The Sun newspaper had claimed that director Peter Schaufuss was teaming up with the singer for the project. However, writing on his website, Bowie said he had never heard of Schaufuss.

RZ0 music released a statement on Bowie‘s behalf, which read, “We have licensed absolutely no material written by Mr Bowie to Schaufuss. We have never been requested to and we do not intend to.”

A spokesperson for RZ0 went on to explain that injunctions may be sought against any parties who seek to use Bowie‘s songs without permission.
