Good Bye David Bowie

I'm devastated by the news of David Bowie losing his battle with cancer. I'm currently marathon listening to his music. I guess his new album was a good bye present. Here's the link to watch it on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Zk1etr2EF_Y or just listen to it here:

I loved him. He was quite the character, and so talented.

RIP.

Like a lot of people I remember him most for his Ziggy Stardust era - some great songs!

He paved the way for flamboyancy to be openly accepted/cool and, of course, pioneered glamrock.

I was particularly fond of him as the Goblin King in Labyrinth.

I just checked the night sky. They do look different...

When I heard the news this morning I went out and watched the new Lazarus video, amazing!

Then I had this flashback to the 70's.

20-25yrs ago I used to play Ziggy Stardust every now and then in a band, along with a few other Bowie tunes. I rarely play any of my electric guitars any more. I have softened with age. I usually just play an acoustic now.
After work today I decided to break out my old trusty Ibanez and give it a whirl. While I was putting new stings on it I YouTubed Ziggy. Low and behold I have been playing the opening lick wrong all these years.............
I was lucky enough to see him live several times. It was always a great show.

That was a past life. Now I just play around the apartment. I got tired of poverty...
