Farewell To A Hero



We can be heroes just for one day? He was that for much, much longer – someone who was always there, and he’s died too young. The spot in Heddon Street where he was photographed for this album sleeve now has a plaque – and here’s a remix from the title track of a lesser-known project, the anti-nuclear animation feature ‘When The Wind Blows’.

    Very sad news…

  2. DC says:

    I grew up listening to his music and it is still a large part of my life. I can’t think of many artists that have had as much influence as Bowie. I can’t think of any where their influences were so diverse.

  3. Martin says:

    When I picture John May it has always been as a white haired David Bowie

    Thanks for the haunting music, Christopher. Last year we lost Oliver Sachs AND Terry Pratchett. Now, with the onset of 2016, another great blows away in the wind. Yes, it’s a savage world – but we have our heroes.

    I haven’t written to you before – but since you are among our heroes — my husband and I thank you for sharing your genius through the Bryant and May books. We are just now reading the latest.

    Gee, yes. He was the soundtrack to growing up.

    The greatest, loved his music all of my life … but such memories he has left us.

    RIP Starman

    However many changes, he was always pure Bowie. Complete integrity.

  8. Helen Martin says:

    And now Alan Rickman. It’s one after another and our community has been losing them, too.
