“There’s been many others, so many times”

 

Our good friend Jérôme Soligny has been in touch with details of a Rock&Folk Bowie special (exclusive peek at the cover in our montage), and the current February issue of the regular Rock&Folk magazine.

Over to Jérôme...

When we heard the news on the saddest Monday morning of all, Rock&Folk decided to keep busy and work hard on the special issue we had in mind for years. We never thought it would be an 'in memoriam' issue.

 

Basically, the special is a compilation of some of the best interviews David gave us over the past 4 decades, some go back to when I was a teenager and when I was actually stealing the mag!

 

But, of course, we also wrote some new articles, starting with a great piece by Eric Dahan, my Bowie compere for years. We had the feeling we had to give our readers (among them our fellow French Bowie fans), the special issue they deserve...and that David deserves too.

 

Our tribute to such an incomparable artist needed to be massive: 100 pages, and, of course, Mick Rock (who else?) provided an exclusive shot from the Pin Ups photo shoot for the special issue. 

 

Now that it’s done, we may cry, or maybe put some David Bowie record on and dance the f…. night away.

 

Also, the issue 582 of the mag (with Motörhead on the cover - what an awful year it’s been so far), is just out.

 

Inside, R&F’s editor Philippe Manœuvre wrote a one page tribute to our Main Man and there’s a page featuring all the mag’s covers he’s been on. Also in this 582 issue, there’s a 6-page article written after I went to New York to see Lazarus. David was still alive.

 

So David, us common mortals salute you wherever you are and as I say in the last words of the last phrase of the last article I wrote for this issue: Have a fantastic voyage!

Thanks to you Jérôme and all at Rock&Folk for your unstinting support of David Bowie over the last forty plus years, it’s very much appreciated.

Meanwhile, check out this animation of the Rock&Folk Bowie covers.
