I know, everyone has been doing Bowie tributes. Nothing I say hasn’t been said before. However of all the musical artists who started in his era, introduced to me by my older brothers, David is one I can honestly say I truly became a fan of. I think it was his diversity … One minute he’s Ziggy, the next the Thin White Duke. I didn’t even mind his 80s stuff. When his album came out two years ago, I was thrilled!
So how to sum up a favourite? Every teenage party I went to ended up with someone playing Space Oddity at parties. Heroes. I was thrilled when Where Are We Now? came out so unexpectedly.
On the Tuesday after he died I was fortunate to be on leave and heard a huge number of tribute shows on radio stations.
So here are some clips.
Starman, gone to the heavens. Planet earth has definitely been blue this week. RIP.
