Another blog by a guy who came up in the 80's playing RPG's, Wargames and some miniatures.
Very sad, Ashes to Ashes is one of my favorite songs!
It's funny, if someone had quizzed me about his songs I would have had a hard time answering. But mentions of them today remind of places I was or things I was doing when I heard them. Ashes to ashes is very good.
While I'm always saddened to hear of someone dying, I confess that I was taken aback by the wall-to-wall media coverage of this subject yesterday, pretty much excluding all other news. Sure, I knew that Bowie was popular, but I don't think I understood (and perhaps still don't understand) why he was *so* important.
Hi Hugh. Yeah, to me what I didn't expect was how much it brought back of my teen years. Bowie was reinventing himself again and his music and presence just sort of seeped into my subconscious. Some times you just don't realize someones impact until they're gone.
