We lost David Bowie within the past 24 hours and as someone who has never really known a life without him, I had to get some form of thoughts down. Incoherent and clumsy, yes - but feel free to read them and share your memories, favourite songs, videos, live performances...whatever of Bowie in the replies.
Someone who is unashamedly true to themselves and never frightened of expressing or exploring any avenue in their mind or personality is left with nothing but a lack of barriers and a plethora of possibilities. David Bowie lived by less of a “why?” and more of a “how?” construct, which is what sits at the core of everything that made him such a genius to many.

There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer. He had learnt of the disease on December 26th, and was at home, sitting in front of his favorite video game from The Rainbow which had recently made it’s way down the street, with his family.
