back to what I know >> starman

I have been a fan of david bowie since I first saw him on top of the pops playing starman in 1972. my best friend ham ran over to my house to see if I had seen it. He also asked me if thought david bowie was a man or a woman!

This particular song reminds me of being at school putting henna in my hair and listening to music my parents didn't like things were pretty good and I probably thought that I was pretty cool around that time.

He still looks good today (even after the recent heart problems). I was about 12 when this was filmed, time has not been as kind to me, I think.
I was lucky enough to see him live about 18 months after this on the Ziggy Stardust tour, it was fantastic. Favourite from that era probably 'five years'.
They were good times.
