This was a real shock to hear this morning. I remember `Starman’ on TOTP and buying Ziggy with what was still my pocket money. The following year I started work and bought two earlier albums (Hunky Dory and TMWSTW) and from then on pretty much everything for the next 30 years. I loved the experimentation and all of the times he refused to be just one thing only. A true original, and he’s going to be very much missed.
Yes, a very sad moment indeed, bringing lots of memories in its wake. (I last saw him in the flesh as I was travelling in a car somewhere near Hanover Square in London; he was walking along the pavement, alone, with a cap pulled down low over his head, but the gait and facial features were unmistakeable.)
Bon Voyage David,
Doesn’t seem real. The Berlin trilogy was an epiphany, of sorts.
And now Glenn Frey, checking out - the threads of yesterday being unpicked.
Yeah … but imagine the wonderful musical tapestry they’re all weaving in another place.
Bon Voyage, Glenn.
