US singer Dwight Yoakam says Bowie revealed the request when the pair discussed their love of Elvis in 1997
It would have been one of the most unusual pairings in musical history – but how would it have sounded? According to a new account – from an unlikely source – Elvis Presley asked David Bowie to be his producer.
The claim comes from country star Dwight Yoakam in an interview with US newspaper the Orange County Register. In the article, published before a concert in southern California, the singer was asked about Bowie, whom he had met in 1997, and with whom he shared a love of Elvis.
