I remember trying to find the Crazy Colours hair dye at 16.
Walked around with turquoise hair for years (I have to find that photo back) I remember trying green eye make up on my lips. I thought it looked awesome and went shopping only to find that the shop girl didn’t want to help me until their manager said that no matter how people looked they still were customers and deserved their service.
David Bowie’s music from that moment on was always tinged with sweet memories and melancholy for me. Never saw him perform life but I will always remember Fame, Heroes, Cat people, the Hunger and Sorrow just to name a few.
Rest in Peace David Bowie. May your music, genius, fearlessness in music live on.
