I would be lying if I said I was a huge fan of David Bowie’s music; it just wasn’t my taste, I guess.
I was, however, fascinated by his changing looks and his second marriage to supermodel Iman. What an incredibly striking couple they made. And I really liked the work he did over the years in support of many children’s charities and, of course, Live Aid.
Like the rest of the world, I was stunned to hear he had been ill for several months and passed away yesterday. As I get older, the thought of someone dying at age 69 seems far too young… Maybe when you pack so much living into those years, and burn as brightly as David Bowie did, your time on Earth is used up more quickly. My condolences to his lovely wife and children.
