Eulogy for David Bowie: 1947-2016

Dood never made a red centavo off'n my ass.
But I do remember a punk in AIT playing Rebel Rebel over and over and over at Ft Leonard Wood in the summer of 1974 with that snazzy guitar hook right up front.

He was a professional for sure.

Love him as Tesla in "The Prestige."

He lived life to it's fullest, on his terms and whims. It must have been exhausting. One of a kind.

Bowie was a magnificent artist. An icon of the baby boomer generation. R I P

4- For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.

5- For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Saw him live in '73, '74 and '76... a fantastic entertainer, innovator and - from what I gather - a genuinely nice human being. RIP , my wife and I regret we didn't see him perform in the mid-90s, as well.
