If you saw the post that I published this morning, you probably noticed that it began as follows:
Musical artists reinvent themselves all the time. Garth Brooks became Chris Gaines. David Bowie became Ziggy Stardust (and all sorts of people).
Needless to say, I drafted that post a couple of days ago, before Bowie changed to his latest persona.
Which puts me in the same league as the New York Times.
David Bowie just celebrated his 69th birthday, released an album, “Blackstar,” and has a show, “Lazarus,” running Off Broadway. Now he is to be honored at Carnegie Hall with a concert featuring the Roots, Cyndi Lauper and the Mountain Goats. The concert, presented by Michael Dorf, who runs City Winery, will take place on March 31.
The Times had to update their article with a blurb at the beginning...which just shows how all of us were surprised.
I'm on a (record) mission from (name your favorite artist here) - I was driving up Euclid Avenue in downtown Ontario one evening when I thought that I spotted a record store. Yes - a record store. For my younger readers...
