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 couldn’t get over the fact that I was standing so close to a legend. I remember thinking “I want to be just like him” (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 he’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 I’m so sad to see you go.
