Something Sketchy


A British Institution

A British Institution


Like most of the population yesterday, I was thinking about David Bowie.

His death was a shock, not least for the realisation, on hearing all the tributes and memories on the media, of how he seemed to have influenced and affected the lives of so many people in his 69 years.

For the 'Baby Boomers' of course his music was to many, the theme to their lives and whether you loved his music or not, it would have been almost impossible to have ignored it. For me, he was a hero. Not that I liked everything that he produced (Tin Machine) but I loved the way he approached every project; 100% every time, and mostly with extraordinary results.His death was no exception. I had been listening to the new album over the weekend but I must admit hadn’t quite got the significance of the lyrics. Sadly everything made more sense yesterday… but it was so beautifully done.

So a thank you to David, especially for Hunky Dory, ‘Where are we Now?’ and for the gig at the Croydon Greyhound in 1972.

We haven’t lost a British Institution, we have consolidated one.

I’m working on something, but still trying to get the eyes right!
