Lost during my own hellish rheumatic winter....a friendly man and a great talent. Thank you for the music, David. You were with me from my early teens, when my father returned from a journey with a David Bowie record under his arm for me. It was David Bowie "A Second Face". I believe I was 10 years old. I was hooked...deeply. David impressed me through the years with his ability to be "part of the times".
I forgave him the drugs, the strange outfits ...he did what was his way.. Smallish judgement was not
what I felt like doing.
I have listened to him while doing homework, while drawing house plans in scale 1:50, while painting...
Or just very loud only for fun:-)
Here he is with Iggy... It could have been Annie Lennox, or Lou Reed or, or, or.
He sang with the best..being among the best demands what he had: openness to the world and other people.
He managed to become "a renanissance man" amongst others very knowledgeable within other arts.
And giving us at the end a deeply philosophical album...
At the center of it all...there is a solitary candle.... burning for you.
Thank you for the "song", David
