To hear it told, David Bowie wanted to make hard rock that he wanted to hear, under the creative environment of a band. A benefit performance with Reeves Gabrels convinced Bowie he'd found his guitarist, and he invited old Iggy mates Hunt and Tony Sales to round out the affair. Thus Tin Machine (they didn't care much what they were called) was fabricated with an eye toward making new rock the old-fashioned way, with a live-in-the-studio energy. Many simply saw it as a shiny new vehicle for David Bowie, and no doubt he needed a change of scenery, but the Machine was dismantled after two studio albums and a live contract ender. Tin Machine stirred up as much controversy for its cover choices and David's defiant insistence that the band was really a band, as for the music they made.
