We can be Heros

It still came as a surprise to hear of Bowie’s death.  I knew that he had had a heart attack a couple of years ago, but was unsure of the illness cancer, which killed him. The media had been obviously busy waiting for this day as full media coverage was given and Yesterday TV had an hour long programme. This was the Starman, Major Tom, a new star will shine tonight and a trip round the Universe has begun.

I went to some rehearsals with his then manager  before David Bowie was famous. Later when I was on attachment at New Musical Express I helped interview him for the Hunky Dory album. I went from the Univ.Westminster and next year I was at the Design Council promoting ‘designer’ music.Illness prevented me from doing  as much as I would have liked. I shall miss him.
