Ah deep joy. I have loved Mr Bowie ever since I first saw him on the 1973 Spiders From Mars tour. Admittedly I had what is known as a 'restricted view' what with being in utero at the time, but it was the start of a love affair I have never quite got over.
As a small girl my Dad sang me to sleep with 'Starman'.
As a pubescent girl my sexuality was at least in part awakened by the gloriously tight trousered Labyrinth. I was absolutely astounded that she didn't just let him keep the baby and join him in his Escher-esque castle!
I have seen him live several times over the years, the last time being an outstanding Glastonbury appearance some dozen years ago.
I love him a bit. Well. Quite a lot really. One of me heroes. I look forward to the new album in March, and for now, here is the single in case you haven't heard it....
