A Day Remembering Bowie

I woke up from a bad dream this morning, around 3:30 AM. I checked my phone, opened Facebook to get my mind off whatever scared me and caught this from WXRT Chicago DJ Jason Thomas.

What does that mean?!

Was the new stuff bad? Did something happen? Then I open Twitter and it’s there in front of my face. The man whose music hit me in a way when I was younger, that forced me to explore and find more like it.

gone.

I thought my nightmare was still going, that I was stuck in the weird place between being conscious and unconscious. Nope. Wide awake. I shared it with the person who I connected with the most on things like this, without any regard for the time…then eventually fell asleep with the Ziggy Stardust riff in my head. It’s still there.

Instead of writing a long and exhausting tribute, which I totally could, I want to just update this page with thoughts, memories, moments, trivia and links that I come across throughout the day…to share with fans who feel the same way.

This page will be updated throughout the day, so feel free to keep checking back.

 

The transformative GIF that you’ll see across the internet all day. Coincidentally saw it make the rounds all last week as well.

93XRT and morning host Lin Brehmer hit the right spots with Bowie music and interviews all morning. I imagine it will be great to hear all day, so tune in here.

 

A tribute concert that was already planned at Carnegie Hall will now be a memorial. March 31st, featuring The Roots, Cyndi Lauper, Ann Wilson, Perry Farrell and Jakob Dylan.
