David Bowie : Fresh Air We remember David Bowie, who died Sunday, with his 2002 interview. He talks about creating — and leaving behind — the Ziggy Stardust persona, gender-bending in the early '70s, and why he's not "a very keen performer." Maureen Corrigan reviews 'The Last Interview' series. Linguist Geoff Nunberg picks 'gig' as his word of 2015, and we listen back to an excerpt of late soul singer Otis Clay's 1999 interview.
