As the sad news of David Bowie’s passing became known yesterday, tributes to the iconic entertainer began to spread across social media. Many entertainers who worked with or met Bowie throughout the years shared stories of their time with the legendary singer, actor, and rights activist.
One person who candidly spoke about their experiences with Bowie was late night host, Conan O’Brien. On last night’s episode of Conan, the comedian fondly recalled his meetings with Bowie.
“He was on our show several times over the years and the man was always outstanding,” said Conan. “People are remembering today what a phenomenal musician David Bowie was and of course that was the case. He was mind-blowingly talented. But in my experience, he was also an incredibly nice person. He was fun, he was always funny.”
In the segment below, Conan and Bowie sing together, talk about their children, and share some not-so-true stories about celebrity interactions.
