method to his madness

Dear Katy. This one is for Simon. I watched a program on Channel 4 called Hello Culture. In this program they showed how David Bowie used to write down whatever he felt like & then cut it into strips to make single sentences, which he then rearranged to form the lyrics for some of his songs. My question is: Has Simon ever tried this method & if so did it work? Love Jayne..aka..Medazzalanda.

“No I don't work like this. Mainly because my head is already jumbled enough and I suspect that this approach would only serve to further confuse me, the rest of the band and any other interested parties. However I believe that Nick has had some results lyrically using methods not unlike those described by you.s"
