RIP DAVID BOWIE

David Bowie died on Sunday. He was 69.

“Fame,” ”Heroes” and “Let’s Dance,” were three of my favorite songs.

Loved when he got together with Mick Jagger and sang, “Dancing in the Street.”

Bowie’s website, davidbowie.com, says the innovative singer, songwriter and actor “died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”

    When actors or musicians die, some scoff at why we are affected…after all, we didn’t know them (most of the time) These people don’t understand that we don’t have to KNOW them for their work to have gotten us through good times and bad times…especially with a body of work like Bowie’s…I hear Young Americans..I think of my former brother-in-law, John RIP.. when I hear Let’s Dance, .I think of that kick-azz party at someone’s house on 2nd St, when we were young and relatively carefree…Heroes always brings a lump to my throat..I don’t know why…just that it does…these are the feelings that kick up when a celebrity passes…what their work meant to us…and, I am so sad about Bowie. yet I am grateful for the gift he gave us for many, many years…and his final gift to his fans, his latest album, released just last week..he knew he was dying and he gave us a love letter…..so….take your protein pills and put your helmet on, sir…there’s a Starman waiting in the sky………

    Dancing in the streets had to be the worst music video of all time. As a matter of fact it debuted during the Live Aid concert in 1985 while Led Zeppelin was reuniting for the first time. An incredible stupid moment for the ABC network
