I felt sick the morning I heard about David Bowie. I thought it was wrong. I thought it wasn't true. I thought it was a joke, but it wasn't..
He has had such a massively huge impact on our culture and in our music. His influence on fashion and hair is beyond measure. I don't remember people having blue hair, yellow hair or green hair before he came along.. plus his amazing haircuts. He was a master of change. Now that he's gone, I hope he gets even more recognition for being the genius and fashion innovator that he was! Just like his songs 'Fashion' and 'Changes'. My favorite line of his is "put on your red shoes and dance the blues" from 'Let's Dance'.
I was lucky enough to grow up in London in the 60's, we had it all, the Beatles, Sassoon's, Mini Skirts, David Bowie, the Stones, it really was swingin' London. My friends and I used to go to a club in London called the Cromwellian, on Cromwell Road, it was very cool, and David Bowie hung out there too...he had a big American convertible that he'd park outside the club.
My friends and I would hang out and talk with him, he just started to get famous. His hair was blue, and he wanted to go out with my friend Janice Appleby- every week he'd ask her out and she'd say, "no, my mum won't let me because you're not jewish " True Story!!
Rest in Peace, David. I'm sorry, I love you. xo
