“Despite their stated intention to clean up, Bowie and Iggy’s initial time spent in Berlin was very much a period of transition – of binging and purging, relapse and recovery. They might have escaped the clutches of Los Angeles, a city seemingly built on cocaine, but they now found themselves in what Bowie later called “the heroin capital of the world,” which made life particularly difficult for Iggy.” (Seabrook, Bowie in Berlin, p.117)
