Hmm, wonder if she'll lend me her jacket?
No one took their eyes off Lorraine...
You all remember the platinum beauty cavorting around in Mick Rock's classic promo for The Jean Genie, who was also immortalised in the press ads for the release of the single via a George Underwood drawing. The stylish lass was of course the very sexy Cyrinda Foxe, a friend of David's that loaned him at least one pair of ear-rings, and most likely much more.
Reports have surfaced regarding a contribution from David of an acoustic Fender 6 string guitar to a benefit for Cyrinda at CBGB's recently. We are very sad to report that this story is true and that Cyrinda is in fact suffering a tumour. An auction was organised for the event by her many friends including her ex-husband, Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler. The money raised will help towards Cyrinda's huge medical expenses.
The guitar David donated was kindly bought for $5000 by the editor of Punk magazine. Love and positive vibes to Cyrinda from all at BowieNet.
We'll buy some...erm, no, we'll just watch a band...
It is also true that David was spotted enjoying a set by the group TAPE recently, though, despite reports elsewhere, this story has no connection with the one above. Here's what David said about the band:
"I went to see TAPE. They were a really very good outfit, a 'rage' type sound but more pop. One of them used to be in Bomb the Bass. Guitar player has a passing resemblance to Harry Potter."
So now you know.
Tell the truth...
Unfortunately, the one rumour that you all hoped was true is in fact not. Mr Bowie will not be performing at the The 5th Annual Webby Awards this coming Wednesday, July 18th, neither will he be a presenter at the awards. Sorry. }:-(
