The Shapeshifter Who Fell To Earth

Bowie-Album-Cover-Final-Major-Project-For-University

Actor / singer Meatloaf was interviewed once about his music career. He corrected the interviewer, though. He said that he was an actor, who happened to play the role of a musician.

I think that is the best way to sum up David Bowie. He is a shapeshifter. Each album is a new role to play. He changes his costume and persona. He becomes a new character each time.

I don’t think I could do that. Maybe its a stubborn streak of honesty. I am just always myself. Some friends I used to have would tell me how they “grew out” of certain kinds of music. I don’t really grow out of anything. I just keep expanding my vocabulary. I kinda look at my musical tastes like the Borg, assimilating everything in sight.

So, maybe I have more in common with Locutus of Borg than David Bowie. I dunno.

I think somebody else likes David Bowie, too.

Staying jacked-up on coke for a few decades probably had something to do with it, too.
