Two gut-punching rock and roll deaths in the span of a couple weeks. This one really took the wind out of me. I've been a huge David Bowie fan since I was a kid and have followed his work my entire life—the highlight being the chance to see him live in 1995 at Shoreline after having scored front row seats. I remember that night like it was yesterday. Not having had anything to drink all evening I'm gearing up to grieve tomorrow. I will pour out a little liquor in memory of a true idol.
And I will watch this video on repeat incessantly. I don't care how cool anyone thinks they are in shunning some of Bowie's more light-hearted stuff, choosing solely to embrace the 70s glam. If you don't think this video is the best video ever made (truly, honestly, and UN-ironically) then you and I will never be friends (or likely agree about much in life):
I hope you're dancing exactly like this down the streets of Heaven, David.
