Ziggy Played Guitar!

Lots of people I admire have passed away. It happens when you get to my age, unavoidable. Of course it saddens me and makes me realize my years are numbered too.

David Bowie’s death was the one that hit me the hardest. His songs got me through my teens. My heart missed a beat every I heard his music. Saw him back in the early seventies and it was the best concert I ever went to. Earls Court London! I don’t think a day goes by without me thinking about him. When he died, all my friends called me expressing their sympathy, they knew he was a big part of my life. Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t a weird obsession, I just loved his music. I loved what he was and what he brought to the world. RIP David. I hope you’re smiling down on us!
