David Bowie - Five Years ( gone )

"Something happened on the day he died"

"News guy wept and told us..."

"We could be Heroes just for one day"

"Gotta make way for the Homo Superior"

Hard to believe that was 5 years ago we lost Bowie. I enjoyed the recent BBC progs some excellent early footage from The old grey whistle test. Legends never really die.

Excellent homage.

@Paul
I know, where did those five years go? There's certainly a lot of fantastic Bowie material on BBC4, along with a ton of other great stuff. It's such a wonderful channel!

@Tim
Thanks, that's very kind. Hope all's well with you?

Thanks, all "good" here. Keeping our heads down, following the rules, Rachel's working hard, I'm hardly working. We've kinda got into a rhythm now since March ;)

Five years on, and Bowie is still dead ):

Thats a nice little selection of pics Simon (although I don't know about the Goblin King...) and a great version of Five Years of course.

@Tim
Glad to hear you're staying safe at Hero Press HQ, all the best.

@Sean
Thanks mate. I admit I love Bowie's exaggerated performance in Labyrinth but... the songs... :-) Hope you're well?

Try and tell my eight year-old self that The Goblin King wasn't the best version of Bowie...

Hi Tom! Your eight year-old self clearly had good taste in '80s fantasy movies :-)
Sophie's a big fan of that film and of the Goblin King. I think, for her, he WAS David Bowie.
I hope you're okay, mate? Speak to you soon.

I'm well thanks, Simon, and stand by my assessment of Goblin King Bowie, whatever anyone or their eight year old self thinks. Especially as they're all obviously younger than me ):
