a real cool cat..
We return to Jones Beach (and why not?) to bring you coverage of the gig from Newsday.com, and also to bring you a slightly different version of the image we posted yesterday. What's special about this one though, is that if you click on the picture above, you will see a large and exceptionally lovely photograph of db and the elements, and also some of you! :-)
Newsday said that David was "the personification of sophisticated cool" and added "Bowie was stylishly smooth during his hour-long set, alternating songs from his impressive new "Heathen" album, including his rocking cover of The Pixies' "Cactus," with such timeless classics as "Fame" and "Ashes to Ashes," which sound as current today as they did more than two decades ago. He played off the rainstorm, catching raindrops on his tongue and arguing with the heavens before launching into "I Would Be Your Slave." Unfortunately, the fun was cut short, after lightning strikes grew a little too close to the stage. (They would also cut off music in the dance tent, where DJ Carl Cox was performing.) Before he left, Bowie whipped the crowd into a frenzy with a rousing version of "Heroes," to "keep spirits high," he said, as sheets of rain began to fall."
