January 11, 2016, Remembering David Bowie with love and heartache. A chronological look at Bowie's career, followed by some rare photos from my own collection from the 1980s.
UPDATED January 16 to add intro to Ashes to Ashes featuring George and outro of David saying goodbye.
"I'm in tears again when you rock and roll with me."
Apologies for some video quality. Only as good as the old sources, unfortunately. Hope you still enjoy if you're missing him, as I am.

//songs from Let's Dance are included without a hint of irony because the Serious Moonlight tour stop in August 1983 in Foxboro, MA was the first concert I ever saw. It was raining and looked like the show was going to be canceled (outdoor venue). Bowie came on, it stopped raining. He finished the show, it started raining again. My friend turned to me and said, "It's official; he's God."//
