40 years ago this month. I can’t believe music like this existed so long ago and no longer does. Oh to have grown up then…
Watched a documentary all about Bowie during this period. His band had absolutely no idea this would be the last time Ziggy & The Spiders from Mars would be performing together. He announced it all onstage and never again performed as Ziggy Stardust. Incredibly ballsy and a bit dickish to his bandmates, but ultimately awesome and legendary.
“You mean to tell me I can never go platinum with a Christian rock band?”
“No, but you can go double myrhh”
Such a great episode.
Excellent concert I attended this evening.
“I wouldn’t reply,
not to him,
he would never
I’d die before I
would tell him
he could kill me
before I’d tell
whatever it was
it belonged only to me.”
My country, ‘tis of thee. Sweet land of liberty. How come I cannot see my future within your arms?
