“How do you capture a Moon Beam… You Don’t”

DAVID BOWIE

1947 – Four Days Ago

We All Grieve In Our Own Way

I recently joined Instagram, and that’s where I found out that David Bowie had passed

freddybowie

I was like… Loss? What are they talking about… So I clicked it

Bowie had just Released a New Album on Friday, January 8th (Also His Birthday), so I was totally confused by the Tweet, until I checked it out…

I immediately started crying… And pretty much couldn’t stop for the next hour

Ironically he’s in a Photo with Freddy Mercury in the Tweet, who was, and is my all time Favorite Vocalist… However, David Bowie was my Second Favorite Vocalist…

And beyond that… They’re both ‘beyond human’ to me… Truly ‘timeless’… ‘Enigmatic’… More than words can say actually

bowie-red-hairMy Personal Relationship (Meaning when he became important to me), was in the 80’s

In 1981 with Freddy

And 1983 with the “Lets Dance” Album

He also starred in a Movie that my Brother and I both really liked

merryAnd in 1986, “Labyrinth”

labyrinth-1986-posterHe was Amazing in “Labyrinth”… Magical… Alluring… And Hilarious… He was Bowie

This one below is one of my Favorite Bowie Songs

But in truth, the more years that went by, the more important, and meaningful David Bowie became to me… Not because of any new Music, but rather I came to realize more and more how Iconic and Amazing he is

At one point I heard he owned a Bank… Maybe he did

The thing is, I’m not a ‘traditional fan’ of anyone really… When people mean something to me, I keep it in the inside mostly… No posters on the wall… Or constant focus on them… Mostly when I catch wind of something about them, or come across a piece of their work, part of me just pauses… And appreciates… Such was the relationship with Bowie over the last 30 years

He became a Mystery to me really…

And I always hoped he’d reemerge… In fact, I was so excited about the New Album… Not for the Music… But more to Hear and See him more again in our Society

But to be honest, all of that was Dashed away when I found out the news

And for the first time in my Life, I find myself wanting Posters of him… I created a David Bowie Pandora Channel, and have been listening to it

There is a whole world that I don’t know about him from the late 80’s to now… And before the 80’s, there are songs that I love by him, but I never really owned any of them… And so sadly, as he leaves, I will begin my Journey into his last 30 years… And his life prior to the 80’s

This is one of my all time favorite songs by Bowie Below

I’m not really sure this post truly conveys how much he means to me… He’s truly one of the most important human beings in my life

Not, like I say, in the traditional ‘super fan’ way… But more as an Artist, and Human Being

I am truly saddened, and changed by his departure

Though he will always be with me… People don’t really die for me… I think of it as more of a loss at a chance to actually meat them, and tell them what they mean to me

God Speed Bowie…

Now cracks a noble heart. Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

(Horatio To Hamlet)

Weird By Any Other Name, Sounds Just As Sweet…

Shirley Manson – Garbage – You Look So Fine

I’m the first to say some of the “Oddest” Musicians, are some of the Sexiest and Coolest

David Bowie – Let’s Dance

No One Odder… No One Cooler

The Guy has such a great Voice, I always felt if he had someone else Write his Music, he’d be unbelievable… But this song is one of the Exceptions, just Close yours and Listen to it

Robert Smith – The Cure – Pictures of You

One of my all time Favorite Cure Songs. There Music was Exceptional, and There Singer, well lets just say if Eye Liner was Candy, this Guy would have some Rotten Teeth, lol

Freddy Mercury – Queen – We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions

Ok, maybe there’s one guy that’s Odder than Bowie… The King or Queen as it were of More Than Rock N Roll, Freddy Mercury… His Voice is simply My Favorite of all Time… God Bless yah man, you F#@#’n Rule!

Lets Go Ahead and End This on Someone Whose Not Known as a Musician, but Still Found His Weird/Great/Cool Place in Musical History

Tim Curry – Rocky Horror Picture Show – Sweet Transvestite

Tim Curry’s Defining Moment, the guy is Just Awesome

Thanks For Chillen for a bit, have a Great Weekend
