There's something about this weekend (actually, this whole next week) that should be special to all of us Bowie fans. It is probably one of the BIGGEST weekends in Bowie history.
Jan 22, 1969, 31 years ago today, David filmed a commercial for LUV Ice Cream, "The Pop Ice Cream" and 4 days later David started filming "Love Ya Till Tuesday." This time period was also when Hermione Farthingale left David.
Jan 22, 1972, 28 years ago, is the day that Melody Maker came out with the headline: "Oh! You Pretty Thing!" This is where David said "I?m gay and always have been, even when I was David Jones"
A year later, David set sail on the QE2 to begin a 100-day tour of the US.
And finally, on the 23rd, 1976 (24 years ago) Station to Station was released, David?s 11th LP.
And this year, on Wednesday the 26th of this month, there will be a chat with Emm, Holly, and Gail. Yes, the females behind the male! And so, with all of this happening, I, A_Girl, wish to declare this week, David Bowie History Week!
Isn?t this just a great week or what?
