HOLLYWOOD – David Bowie is dead. Ashes to Ashes, dust to dust.
David Bowie – 1946-2016 – is rated. Some people are over-rated; some are under-rated, but Bowie was always rated exactly right. He was the legendary re-inventor, the rock n’ roll crack’d actor, the thin white duke, the man who fell to earth, Ziggy, the man who sold the world, Major Tom. Shit he was even Jareth the Goblin King. When we needed an ax to break the ice, he was there. He saved us all from rock and roll suicides. He was the outsider, the alien, he put out fire with gasoline.
He was a hero, because he told us that we all could be. Just for one day.
