david_bowie_07Didn’t we all grow up listening to David Bowie, getting lost in his music and wondering how he got to be so damn cool? Something, everything about the man was just spellbinding. He made new rules and amazing music; so many people site him as an influence, everyone looked up to his individuality. All of us wanted to be like him.

So it was with utter and genuine shock when the news came that he had died today, just a few days after his birthday (my birthday too, incidentally). Keeping his illness quiet, he slipped away without fuss or drama, so soon after releasing his last video Lazarus, surely portentous as we realise in hindsight?

A sad, sad day and a bloody good chance to dig out those old songs and love them anew.
