French host Guillaume Durand, a long time fan, was really happy to welcome David Bowie on the set of his show. The performance of the seven songs was brilliant and most of the talking, despite a few translation problems, was very interesting. The idea was to have other artists on the set, maybe not all Bowie-connected, but all fully aware of DB's music. Among them were Damon Albarn, Air and Francoise Hardy.
The duet with Damon and DB is a real slice of history. "Fashion", on that special night, sounded more modern than ever! The chat between David and Damon was also great and David insisted on the fact that he considers "Think Tank" as one of the best albums of the year.
Francoise Hardy, a very famous singer during the sixties/seventies and now a living icon, was delighted to finally meet David. She'd been saying for the last fifteen years how much she loved him as a songwriter, singer and performer and was now able to meet the man in the flesh! David also seemed very happy and even more when she said "Outside: was her favorite album. She had also worked with Damon and Blur in the past.
Air played "Another Day" from their next album, out early next year (2004) and also had an interesting chat with David. He's been aware of their work since the magnificent "Moon Safari" and confirmed he couldn't wait to hear the new album.
Other artists "on" the show were Moby (live from New York, telling nice things about last year's (2002) US tour), Dandy Warhols (rehearsing for the tour they sent a video message from LA), Too, Many DJs and Mick Rock, live from London, who talked about his "Moonage Daydream" book with our man.
The chat did include some fantastic moments (even though Davif couldb't always hear the questions properly) among them the bits about Salvador Dali and Elvis Presley.

- The interviews on this DVD are in French.
- This is the complete Trafic.Musique show, with some non-Bowie content (Air).
- Quality is superb, much better than other versions of this show available.
- The title is "Traffic" on the artwork, so it is the same here.
