Years ago I had the privilege of seeing David Bowie live in concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. It was standing room only by the stage where I was and I couldnâ€™t get over the fact that I was standing so close to a legend. I remember thinking â€œI want to be just like himâ€ (I was playing in a band at that time, so I was soaking in all the inspiration).
He was certainly not of this world – he was certainly the man who fell to earth. And now heâ€™s on to the next plane. RIP David Bowie, it was nice to be in the same room with you experiencing your presence and music, and Iâ€™m so sad to see you go.
