David Bowie's intensely productive Berlin period -- when he made the iconic albums "Heroes" and "Low", launched Iggy Pop's solo career and kicked a drug habit -- is the theme of a new show adapted from last year's sold-out exhibition in London.As photos on display show, Bowie was re-living the bohemian pre-war Berlin described by his friend Christopher Isherwood in books that would inspire the musical "Cabaret".The Berlin era was so influential that Bowie has described the records he made here as "my DNA".Heidemann also discovered correspondence between Bowie and the ageing German screen idol Marlene Dietrich.Guiding visitors through recording studios used by a chart-list of legends -- U2, Nina Hagen, Nick Cave and Depeche Mode -- Thielo Schmied of Fritz MusicTours tells the story of how Bowie spotted his producer Visconti kissing one of the backing singers in the scruffy backyard beneath the Wall.
