David Bowie on Pin-Ups:

"The Pin-Ups album was a pleasure. And I knew the band (the Spiders) was over. It was a last farewell to them in a way." (September 1974)

"I've got all these old records back at home, but we don't have them here or anything. We just took down the basic chord structures and worked from there. Some of them don't even need any working on - like Rosslyn for example. But most of the arranging is done by myself and Mick...and Aynsley too." (August 1973)

"These are all songs which really meant a lot to me then - they're all very dear to me.

"These are all the bands which I used to go and hear play down the Marquee between 1964 and 1967. Each one meant something to me at the time. It's my London of the time." (August 1973)

"The Chateau D'Herouville was the name, and what a lovely place to record an album. Warm, summer sunshine, a lovely chateau and a fantastic 16-track recording studio. Enough to please any hard-working, city-weary, young musician. The chateau is in the village of Herouville just outside Paris. We spent three wonderful weeks there recording my new album Pin-Ups. It's all those fun and fabulous songs from the mid-sixties that never really got quite the attention their lovely easy beats deserved. Ronno, Trevor and Mick Garson were there with us, and Aynsley Dunbar came along to play drums.

"There seemed to be an endless stream of visitors, like Jean Millington (Fanny), Nico, that really wonderful singer, with a friend of hers. Kid Jensen (of Radio Luxembourg fame) and a lovely French singer called Christine.

"Dinners were really momentous occasions, with everyone seated at a super-long table with candles and dry wine, delicious food and all those beautiful faces with their suntanned cheeks and twinkling eyes.

"This chateau once belonged to the famous classical composer Chopin, and was occupied for a while by the famous woman writer with a man's name, George Sand.

"Actually we recorded Pin-Ups in one of the two studios which the chateau now houses, the George Sand Studio, which is where the stables used to be. The other studio, called the Chopin Studio, is located in the main house and the two buildings are connected by an arcade. The chateau is made of natural stone and stucco and is surrounded by high stone walls and huge iron gates.

"When we ventured outside the chateau, it was usually in our big green Cadillac Fleetwood Limousine. It really must be the longest car in France, and it was usually to a discotheque in Paris called the Malibu Club.

"There we would drink and dance and party 'til 4 or 5 a.m., and one night I was just so in love with Paris that I sent the car home without me and checked into the beautiful Hotel George V.

"Most nights, however, were spent in the studio where we'd drink French wine and record until dawn."
