The lady from another grinning soul...

Loads of GAD stuff for you all... Particularly the NY BowieNetters among you. First up, Gail has sent in a message about a live broadcast of a Joni Mitchell Tribute concert tomorrow (Saturday), that she will be performing a couple of songs at. Here's a bit directly from the lovely lady herself:

Bowienet/ebay Auctions - 2001 Revisited

on March 21, 2003

Imagine being able to wear this clobber to a show on Bowie's tour later this year.
The threat of a devastating upper cut will guarantee you your place at the front,

If the shirt and gloves above look familiar to you, that's because you've seen them before. The items were first sold off in a BowieNet/ebaY auction last year.

Changes Afoot On The Bbc Tonight

on March 18, 2003

The very first RCA music press advertisement for a Bowie single. This particular one
appeared in Melody Maker in January 1972, and RCA generously shared the ad for
Changes with an ad for the theme from the hit TV Series A Family At War! However,
despite RCA splashing out, and Tony Blackburn making the record 'Single Of The Week'
on Radio1 (a big deal back then) the song failed to chart. The next 45 was a different story.

Changes are taking the pace I'm going thru...

Tonight's TOTP2 on the BBC here in the UK (BBC2 6.20pm) is showing an archive performance of David Bowie's song Changes. On
