I was startled awake this morning by Justin crying out, “Oh no!”. I immediately thought it had something to do with the dog… or the shop… But no, I woke to the news that David Bowie had died.
I haven’t been as affected by a ‘celebrity’ death since the passing of the great John Peel. Bowie, like Elvis, is so iconic that a second name is surplus to requirements.
I’ve been listening to 6Music all day; Lauren Laverne, Mark & Stuart and Steve Lamaq have all been playing his music, old and new. The tributes and wonderful stories of him being a kind, funny, humble man have been pouring in. He’ll leave a huge void.
“I’m not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman. I’m living on.” David Bowie
