therealmickrock: Thinking about David’s death …


Thinking about David’s death today, I came across something I wrote some 30 years ago, reflecting on my Ziggy Stardust photos:

“I experienced Bowie above all as a piece of living artwork, constantly modulating and mutating like a series of startling reflections in a cracked mirror. He was fascinating: Ziggy Stardust was a new breed of rock n’ roll operative, a rogue hitman with his own agenda, a post-moderrn heartthrob with destiny on his mind, a dreamer of dada with glitter in his soul. He was the Scarlet Pimpernel in fabulous drag. He was what the times needed and a whole lot more.”

Yes, David. You were definitely what we needed and much, much more. God bless. xxx
