At a concert in Chicago at Marytr's, Happy was goofing around between songs and asked the audience to sing something. One guy sang a bit of "Golden Years" so Happy responded by singing the refrain of "Fame" - the bit that is the word "fame" repeated, each repetition lower in pitch.

When Bowie originally recorded "Fame", there were no automatic pitch-shifters. His version was edited together by recording bits at different tape speeds. As great a singer as David Bowie is, he didn't have the range to sing all these notes.

Happy sang this acapella. No effects.

The quality of this clip is pretty bad. There was almost no light on the stage. I've processed the video as much as I feel comfortable doing. The audio is original, other than processing out the sound of a cash register ringing (my camera was near the bar).
