My prayer flies like a word on a wing...
BowieNetters Susans and Regina are back from a fun weekend in Scotland where they attended the T in the Park festival. They both alerted me to the
Pink: I'd like David Bowie to know that we other artists miss him greatly. We were all looking forward to seeing him at T in the Park and hope he feels better very, very soon. He is in my prayers.
Justin Hawkins of The Darkness joked: 'Don't rush back David. We need these headline slots. As they say... every cloud. Everybody needs a day off occasionally. We hope David gets better real soon. We were honoured to even be on the same bill as him. While it's great we're now headlining, it was by default. It was David's show. We wish him the best.
James Walsh of Starsailor: I was very shocked when I heard what was wrong because initially we all thought it was just a trapped nerve in his back. To find out it was actually something wrong with his heart was a lot more serious. It's a real shame he couldn't make it today. We've got to all send him our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Katie Melua: I want to see David get better soon and see him back in good health and on stage.
Regina tells me that, as further tributes to David, The Charlatans played a snippet of "Heroes" and Starsailor sang "The sun machine is coming down and we're gonna have a party" from Memory Of A Free Festival at the end of their last song. She also pointed out that despite David's absence there were many Bowie T-shirts in evidence among the crowd and indeed Bowie placard waving.
