“I’ve just remembered that I never told you about the party I had at the Café Royal after my last concert, so I’ll make this week’s letter about that… Oh, what a night it turned out to be! Mick Jagger, Lou Reed, Jeff Beck, Lulu, Spike Milligan, Dana Gillespie, Ryan O’Neal, Elliott Gould, Ringo Starr and Barbra Streisand… all there at my last concert party at the luxurious Café Royal – everyone looking so lovely in their sparkling evening clothes and colorful make-up… dancing, sipping champagne and tasting delicious salmon and big fresh strawberries and cream. The disc jockey played lots of really good soul and rock ‘n’ roll records, and the dance floor was absolutely packed all night.” – David Bowie recalled.
