(Interestingly Michael Palin writes in his diary book, about being kept awake in the Forte Posthouse hotel at the zoo, as a certain Mr David Bowie was staying in the same hotel, on the same floor. David Bowie had just played The Empire on the Saturday 19th May. Palin remembers the Bowie entourage being a relief from the usual grey suited types, and recalls the lobby being full of Bowie people and equipment on the morning of Sunday 20th, also being particularly impressed by Bowie’s Dodge van complete with blacked out windows).
